My parents made potatoe pancakes all our life, I had no idea they are actually called latkes, they also always made walnut cake, which in reading the recipe for purim is very similar, they never put chocolate in it. Our last name was also Schwartz, which is a german/jewish name, which my sister and I studied out a couple of years ago, quite interesting.

Re: grind!
I would take the word 'grind' to mean 'grate'. Grin ding would make the potatoes too mushy. This is my opinion, I could be wrong.
Chanukah Sameach to all.

Lovely
Thank you very much for the lovely recipe! I added a big onion as suggested below (would surely have been nice without, too) and the latkes were great. Thanks again and Chanukah sameach!

Re: Latlke recipe for kids
Ooops, someone forgot to put grated onions in the recipe. With 5 potatoes you need at least one large or 2 smallish/medium size grated onions. Adding the onions might mean a little more flour might be needed due to moistness of onions.
Geshmucht!
This is how my mother made them. Can't come any better than that.
