2 small baking potatoes (about 1/2 pound)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 Braeburn or Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored and grated
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup creme fraiche (if unavailable, substitute sour cream)


1. Several hours before serving, peel potatoes and slice in half. Place in small saucepan and cover with water; heat to boiling. Cook ten minutes; drain and refrigerate potatoes until cold.
2. In large bowl, beat together egg, salt, and pepper. Add apple, green onion, and parsley. Coarsely grate chilled potatoes; stir into apple mixture with flour.
3. In large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Measuring 1 tablespoon for each pancake, fry potato-apple mixture until golden brown-about 3 minutes each side. (while frying, flatten pancakes slightly with back of fork.) Add more oil to skillet when necessary. Drain pancakes on paper towel. Serve warm with creme fraiche.
