Place apricots and ¾ cup (175 mL) water in a small saucepan. Cover, bring to a boil on medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Add horseradish and purée using a hand blender; set aside.

Peel and grate potatoes; place in a bowl of cold water. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Place potatoes in a clean dishtowel and wring out excess liquid.

Using your hands, mix potatoes, onion, eggs and flour in a bowl. Generously season with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

In a large skillet, melt butter on medium-high heat and drop spoonfuls of potato mixture, flattening with a spatula, to make a dozen latkes. Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until latkes are tender and golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

Place latkes on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Top 6 with cheese slices and cook in the oven until cheese is melted. Add apricot purée and arugula; cover with remaining 6 latkes. Serve immediately. 


Cheese alternative: Canadian Gouda.
