Here's the recipe for the cholesterol-laden but oh so delicious grebenes.

Latkes: Potato with Grebenes - meat
Posted by : Lita Lotzkar

6 medium sized potatos
2 eggs, beateen
1/2 cup finely chopped grebenes
1/2 cup matzo meal
1 tsp salt

Peel, grate and drain potatoes.  Add eggs, grebenes, matzo meal and salt.
Mix well  Drop batter by the tablespoonsful into hot oil or shortening,
deep enough to cover the pancakes.  Brown on both sides over moderate heat.
Serves 4 - 6

Serve with applesauce


Schmaltz & Grebenes

chicken skin
1 pound chicken fat
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup water

Cut chicken skin and fat into 1-inch squares.  Place chicken fat, skin,
onion, and water in a heavy saucepan over a very low flame.  Simmer gently
until all the fat
has been rendered and the chicken skin is crisp and brown.  Strain
schmaltz (refrigerate).  Drain grebenes (cracklings).

Note:  Schmaltz is used for shortening and seasoning in chopped liver or
lokchen  kugel or eaten plain by grebenes lovers   

Note #2 -Very high in cholesterol

I've never heard of "grebenes" but they sound a.w.e.s.o.m.e. !!!
