Three Hanukkah activities

Potato Latkes - updated for 2022 - Little potato pancakes are a traditional food for Hanukkah celebrations. In my mom's recipe, they are salty, deep fried, and delicious. In modern latke recipes the salt and fat are decreased. How do the two recipes compare? 6.RP.A, 7.RP.A, MP6, MP8
Hanukkah is soon - updated for 2022 - Hanukkah begins on Sunday, December 18th.
