In honor of Hanukkah, and the miracle of the oil that lasted eight days, we made jelly doughnuts today. This is not a cooking project for the weak at heart. It involves making a yeasted dough, frying in very hot oil, and (the true miracle) injecting the jelly neatly into the doughnut. We did not have the appropriate kitchen implement for that last step (there must be a nice pastry tool out there somewhere) but David improvised by making his own. Interestingly, this involved a fair amount of duct tape, his material of choice for many projects. There are countless recipes for doughnuts, but we found this one from the blog East Meets West Kitchen (based on a recipe from Gourmet) to be just right. If you are brave enough to make these, you'll definitely enjoy them. And they are much, much better than Dunkin' Doughnuts.
