My mother made the best potato  latkes
And we never put anything on them, just grabbed them out of the frying pan as they were done.

Recent posts about Galicia brought to this senior's mind from the distant past... what you put on your latkes showed from whence the family came, or so the story vaguely goes for me.  Apple sauce?  Sour Cream?  Something else? Having a sweet tooth my choice was applesauce, but others used sour cream as far as I can remember from way back when..  Applesauce  = ???  Sourcream = ???  Something else = ???
My family is from Brest (Litovsk), Belarus; Grodno, Russia; Russia-Poland.  My in-laws were from  Berezin/Bresin, Kodima, Minsk, Belarus.
Stay safe and well,
