  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 package (12 oz) frozen cranberries (about 3 cups)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 large russet potatoes, washed and scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced green onion, plus more for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried mustard
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


  • 1
    Place sugar, cranberry juice, cranberries, cardamom, allspice, and salt and pepper (to taste) in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil; stir until sugar dissolves.
  • 2
    Reduce heat to medium. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture reduces and cranberries burst. Remove from heat; set aside to cool.
  • 3
    To make the latkes, grate potatoes (unpeeled) with a coarse grater. Roll up grated potatoes in paper towels; squeeze to release as much excess liquid as possible.
  • 4
    Place grated potatoes in a large bowl along with minced red onion, flour, garlic, green onion, salt, tarragon, dried mustard, eggs, and some pepper (to taste) . Stir to thoroughly combine.
  • 5
    Pour 1/3 cup vegetable oil into a 10-inch skillet. Heat 2 minutes over medium high heat, then scoop a heaping tablespoon of the potato mixture into hot oil; flatten slightly. Repeat 3 more times so you have 4 latkes total in the pan.
  • 6
    Cook latkes 2 to 3 minutes per side until crisp and golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • 7
    Repeat with remaining potato mixture, adding more oil as needed.
  • 8
    Serve latkes with minced green onion sprinkled on top and cranberry sauce on the side.
