     This is a meal I fixed on my 19th birthday. It was a treat to fix it--partly because we have Jewish background, partly because I just enjoy cooking.
     First, I'll tell you what the meal will consist of, then I will tell you how to make it.
    Corned Beef                    Latkes          Fresh tossed salad or steamed broccoli

For the corned beef, either use canned corned beef and slice it; serving it cold or warmed. If you want fresh corned beef, follow the instructions on the package, ensuring that you cook it gently so as to ensure its tenderness.

Peel 7 large potatoes. 
Wash them well. 
Chop 3 potatoes and immerse them in water in medium pot and boil until very tender. 
Grate last 4 potatoes in food processor or hand grater.
Mince 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic. 
When all potatoes are ready, combine them and the onion and garlic in a bowl.
Pour in
2/3  cup corn, rice or matzo meal (gluten free matzo meal)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons applesauce
3 tablespoons olive oil. 
Combine all ingredients well.
     Heat 3/4 cup corn oil in a cast-iron skillet. When pan and/or oil is very hot, pat potato mixture into small cakes and put on to cook. Make sure potato patties are a golden brown on both sides, and inside is slightly firm before removing from the pan. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

     If you would like to serve a tossed salad, here is what you'll need:
--Large bowl rubbed with garlic
--2 carrots, peeled and grated
--1-2 heads lettuce of your choice, washed and shredded
---1 small stalk celery, minced
--1/2 onion, minced
--1/8 leek, minced
--broccoli washed and in very small pieces
--1-2 fresh tomatoes, washed and minced
--juice of one lemon, sprinkled over the top before serving

If you want steamed broccoli, be sure to not overcook it!
Serve Kadem Grape Juice as a beverage.      I hope you enjoy! 
Dessert idea: Jelly Doughnuts (look up Joan Nathan's jelly doughnut recipe) 

Allergen information: Free of wheat, egg and milk
Recipe contains corn oil. Other oil may be used if desired.
