Crispy Potato Latkes in the November 2012 issue. Cook's Illustrated's recipes almost always turn out perfect, so when we started thinking about making latkes, I pulled out the ripped out page. We made the latkes over New Year's weekend and served them with this pork tenderloin and blanched & sauteed green beans.
While waiting for the starch to settle, microwave the potatoes for just a bit, 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until warmed through but not hot, then spread out on a cookie sheet to cool.
