Re: Potato Latkes...are you Litvak or Galitizianer? #galicia #lithuania

I'm pure Litvak on all sides and it was apple sauce all the way. Sour
cream means you only eat latkes with diary meals.  Side note: I have
spent several months in Lithuania over the years. "Kugelis" was
considered a Jewish dish, and it was always on the menu at the Vilnius
State University cafeteria.  It was just like my mother's kugel!  On one
visit I stated with the yiddish writer Gregory Kanovich.  His Lithuanian
wife taught me how to make the real thing.  I will share the secret with
anyone who writes me for it.

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,
