This is what my grandmother called "cherugah" except that you slit the
center and pulled one
end through before frying - it looks like a bow tie!
Latkes were never sweet - I eat mine with salt!

I was born in western Hungary and I don't recall anyone eating latkes at
anytime of the year. I have a library of Hungarian Jewish and
non-Jewish cookbooks and nothing similar appears. Langos contains some
boiled potatoes, but it's a very distant cousin of latkes. I didn't
become aware of latkes until I moved to Australia and mixed with
Eastern European Jews and once I married a girl >from Poland it became a
part of my Hannuka menu. I sprinkled it with salt and my Polish in-laws
with sugar.

How about Cake Meal Pancake Latkes? #poland

sangreenb@...
 

Hello: My grandmother came >from Sniatzyn a bike ride >from Czernowitz,
Austria (now the Ukraine). Every Pesach she made latkes out of cake meal
(she used the cake meal instead of matzo meal). They came out like small
latke sized pancakes very light and golden in color.
She served them sprinkled with sugar on them. As a child I always looked
forward to her cake meal pancakes - as do my daughters, and now my
grandaughters.

My mother-in-law came >from Pukovitzi near Minsk (White Russia). She
told me they ate their potato latkes plain as they were too poor to have
sour cream.

I have enjoyed the Latke discussion - so interesting how different
localities fixed their latkes.

Genealogy research sometimes gets a bit heavy and serious and it's nice to
read about a lighter topic.

Happy Hanukkah to all.

May I correct Judith Scarani's assumption that "...sugar was a wealthy man's
pleasure. It certainly didn't grow in Galicia--or any other part of
Poland." Sugar is derived >from beets, as well as sugar cane. So, it was a
common foodstuff in Europe.

Speisman, Wiltsek, and Goldner families #hungary

Rebecca Lay <speis@...>
 

Hi Everyone--
I am new to this list. I am researching my Wiltsek family relatives.
Louis Wiltsek came to the USA >from Hungary in 1898. I believe he was
married at the time, and had four boys with his first wife, whose name
I don't know. The boys were: David ("Billy"), who was my
great-grandpa, Henry, Freddy, and Willie, who died as a young child.
After his first wife died, Louis married Hermine Baldinger, who had
four daughters >from a previous marriage: Mildred ("Ruth"), Martha,
Alice, and Sylvia. Louis and Hermine had two children together: Milton
and Edith. Does anyone know anything about Wiltseks in Hungary?

I am also researching the Goldner family. My great-great-grandpa
Sandor Goldner was born in Hungary. I don't know the name of his first
wife, who died before they had children. (I think.) I believe his
second wife's name began with B (because my grandma Berta (Wiltsek)
Speisman believes she was named for this person) but I don't know her
surname or where she was from. My great grandma Rose Goldner was born
in New York City on August 12, 1901, and had three siblings: Bernard,
Charlotte and Elsie. Are there any Goldner connections on this list?

If anyone knows about the Speisman family of Bialystock, please feel
free to contact me about that, thought I realize that there is a
separate list for Bialystock families, and I have inquired there as
well.

Thank you all very much!

Re: Re Latkes, Grodno, Belarus style #poland

BARBARU@...
 

In my family the potato latkes were eaten with applesauce if the meal was
fleichig and with sour cream and/or applesauce if it were a milichdika
meal. Plain matza meal latkes were always eaten with sugar but as a child
I liked grape jelly better.

MIROVSKY/MIROW family & a thank you #poland

dayna reader <zoeys_mom@...>
 

Hello all,

Like many of us in the USA, I've been literally
saturated in Christmas stuff for at least a month now.
I just wanted everyone to know how much I enjoy
getting my daily digest of this group in my inbox. It
gives me such a warm feeling to read everyone's
latke/Chanukkah traditions after a day out in my very
Catholic small town. So thanks to all who post here!

I'm searching for the family MIROVSKY. Most likely
they came >from the area of Sejny or Suwalki. At least
one brother immigrated to Isreal, married an had a
daughter named Aviva (b. around 1933) and a son. As
far as we know, he kept the name MIROVSKY. This
brother was married to an aunt of mine, Rivka, who was
born c. 1910. Another brother, Joseph, moved to New
Castle, PA. and changed the family name to MIROW.

I'm searching for any family >from the Israel side.
I've already posted at the JGFF, but thought I might
also put it out to this group.
