Potato-Carrot-Onion Latkes

6 medium baking potatoes, peeled
1 carrot
2 onions
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste

sour cream and/or applesauce (optional)

Grate potatoes and onions with grater blade of food processor. Place a colander large enough to hold the grated potato-onion mixture over a pot or bowl. Remove the grated potato-onion mixture from the food processor bowl and put in the colander. Let stand for five minutes.

Press down on the mixture to hasten the draining process. Repeat this pressing step two-three more times at five minute intervals. The ingredients will be ready when the mixture no longer squishes when pressed (in approximately 15 minutes).

Using the grater blade of the food processor, grate the carrot. Mix the drained potato and onion shreds with the carrots. Add eggs, flour, salt, and pepper.

Carefully, pour the liquid out of the bowl/pot which was placed under the colander during the draining step. At the bottom of the bowl, you will find a thick, starchy paste (potato starch). Scrape this paste out  of the bowl and add to the potato-carrot-onion-egg mixture, blending well.

Drop by the spoonful into hot oil and fry until golden and crisp on both sides. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with salt and pepper or sour cream or applesauce.
