Latkes are traditionally served for Hanukkah because they are cooked in oil (to commemorate the vial of oil lasting for 8 days).
This updated version of classic kaese latkes was created in deference to the heroine Judith, who saved the Jews from annihilation by feeding salty cheese and wine to General Holofernes.
This is a very kid-friendly recipe and a great way to get those iron-packed fruits into their diet.
Although not mentioned in Deuteronomy, almonds also figure prominently in Tu BiShvat celebrations, as they are the first tree to flower in Israel at that time of year.
