  1. Preheat oven to 250°F with rack in the upper portion of your oven.
  2. Peel potatoes and coarsely grate into a bowl using a large teardrop-shaped holes of a box grater or in a food processor fitted with medium shredding disk.
  3. Add lemon juice and toss to coat.
  4. Coarsely grate onion into same bowl.
  5. Transfer to a kitchen towel (not terry cloth), then gather up corners to form a sack and twist tightly to wring out as much liquid as possible.
  6. Wipe bowl clean, then return potatoes and onion to bowl and stir in flour, eggs and 1 1/4 tsp salt until just combined.
  7. Heat oil in a 12 nonstick skillet over medium -high heat until hot, but not smoking.
  8. Fill a 1/4 cup measure halfway with latke mixture and carefully spoon it into skillet, then flatten to 3 in diameter with a slotted spatula.
  9. Form 5 more latkes in skillet and fry until undersides are deep golden, 1 1/2 - 3 minutes (If latkes brown to quickly, reduce heat to medium).
  10. Turn over and fry until deep golden all over, 1 1/2 to 3 minutes more.
  11. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, then transfer to a metal rack set in a baking pan and keep warm in oven.
