Uh, let's be let's talk traditional first, and then we can spin out what goes into the traditional lakha. I love where we're starting else. And first of all, I speak to my traditional Laska that was made in my family. First by my grandmother, Helen, and then usually by my dad, Larry. Um, it's I think fairly traditional a couple of main ingredients. Shredded potato on a box grater also onion on a box grater. Egg and then Ride on the You know, of course, seasoned salt and pepper and Then the most important part that I think about the traditional AKA is not that sexy, but it's drainage. Um, you you must. Release the liquid from the potato and onion mixture, So I actually did a dry run of luck of making with my dad last night virtually course we weren't together. And he, uh He revisited a two step dreaming approach. So first you really want to just squeeze out as much of that liquid as possible, either with a dish towel or cheesecloth or something like that, and then You think just to let it green over a colander again.

All right, Topping wise. Where do you stand on toppings for Lucas? This is such a controversial question. Um, I prefer a little bit from both camps, meaning a little bit of sour cream on a little bit of apples off. So I think that the hot lot go with a little cool and tangy and a little bit sweet apple sauce and then the creaminess from the sour cream. I think all of those together to meet make the perfect bite. I know that this is a controversial opinion. I'm sure we'll get calls about it. I think people are very divided into two different camp. And for those, for the uninitiated, what's the controversy? Some people are just on teams savory 100%. They prefer either plain or with sour cream. Don't be a bar on team sweet and they feel like that was us. Add some sweetness, and some people don't would never even think about combining, but You know a lot. What It's perfect. I think about the locket is that it's a vehicle, you know for toppings and for other flavors. Let's take some calls. Of course you've got him already. Let's go to Shuli on line four from Woodmere High shool. You're on the air. Hi. So fun to be here. Well, so happy to have you S so the color before. Just talk about making a traditional last guys. I haven't trapping that. Maybe a little bit. Not traditional, but definitely Yemi. Um, I actually make a pastor of sauce that I put out that I served with my last guns. Pesto sauce and Yeah, it gives a nice like fresh or Venus to the last guys. It's also again. Um and I make it with parsley. One of the reasons why I like using parts Liam and passed on so much is because it doesn't turn brown. Doesn't get that brown layer that fable Paso typically get Um and I just use a bunch of parsley, a chief minister or two of salt. She would have me close and garlic here. Best olive oil and some much You can I prefer to use the South. You're not like pecan or cashews again because they blend up really nicely and they're not better. And then I was expensive. It's time. Given us so many good options today. Surely thank you so much. Let's go to Maxine calling in from Brooklyn on line three. Maxine wants to share a little family secret. Hi, Maxine. Thanks for calling all of it. Yeah. Thanks for taking my call. Go for it. I was calling about two things. One is the way that my mother taught me to measure. Um, for the blackest. Which is a recipe is very simple. It's just like three meeting sized potatoes. One medium size onion. Um, uh, one egg, some salt and a handful of flour. And I said to her, I said so. Well, how will I know how to measure it like what's medium and my mother was 4 ft nine inches tall. And very small and she said. Is, if I know how to do it according to my size, you'll know how to do it according to yourself, and she that she refused to tell me how much it was, she said. Your medium your medium potato will be different than my medium. Whether they'll taste but don't worry, and it's us. There's some wisdom in that there really isn't wisdom in that. There is okay, It comes out great every time and it's also hand graded, which was like traditional, and I don't do anything else. Um, but the other thing I called the bad is that Way, always saying a sonic a song. And yet it's you know, I'm 79. My mother was an immigrant, and we keep spoke Yiddish to my grandmother, and we always saying Song that everyone things in English now. Which is the best. You know. Veronica Avantika.
