It’s traditional to cook with oil during the Hanukkah holiday and there’s no better way to mark the holiday than to enjoy Jelly Donuts — also known as Sufganiyot.  (I’m all over celebrations that involve Donuts!)  This year Hanukkah starts at sundown on December 6th.

While Jelly Donuts are thankfully available year-round, here’s a sampling of special holiday-inspired Jelly Donut offerings:  (Also see the Dessert Surveillance posting on Donuts.)
