This recipe came from the vast collection at the blog Everything Pumpkin. There are plenty of pumpkin latkes recipes out there, some use pumpkin and potatoes and some use canned pumpkin. I liked this one because of its simplicity and use of fresh pumpkin as the main ingredient. As you can see from the fryer, we used way more oil than necessary, but we were using it for another recipe and decided to just go with it rather than pour the extra hot oil out. These turned out really good with the outsides crispy and the insides tender. I use a food processor to grate, which makes short order of grating just about anything, including pumpkin. The seasonings were perfect and all they needed was a little sour cream and a sprinkling of chives.
