What's the best way to remove the excess liquid from the grated potatoes? Is it enough to put the grated potatoes into a large strainer and let the liquid drip out? Do the grated potatoes need to be wrapped in a towel and squeezed? Is there an even better way to do this?
Also, I think I remember that after draining the liquid, my Bubbie would spill the liquid out of the bowl and then she'd scrape the starch that was at the bottom of the bowl out and put it back in with the potatoes. Does anyone do this, and, if so, how does this help the latkes?
