latke debate: apple sauce v. sour cream
It's the classic sweet v. savory question. (Not unlike U Chicago's latke/hamentashen debate.) I like both, but I'm leaning to the sour cream side these days...
Any strong preferences out there?
APPLE SAUCE!!!! Especially really chunky homemade (or homemade style) applesauce.
Now I want latkes.
Usually for me it's sour cream, except this time of year I like to have it with some fresh homemade applesauce.
In my Polish (Catholic) New Jersey family, these are called "platki," but essentially the same thing, and we ALWAYS had them only with sour cream, so that's definitely my preference.
I didn't know applesauce was even a traditional accompaniment until I was probably an adult. I've tried it, but it's just not the same.
