There are many reasons to love Hanukkah, but at the top of the list are the jelly donuts, sufganiyot in Hebrew, that get fried up this time of year. Since Hanukkah is all about the miraculous oil that stuck around for eight biblical days, this holiday is celebrated by eating things that are -- you guessed it -- fried in oil. So, donuts (and also latkes).

If you've been eating sufganiyot for ages, now would be a great time to experiment with your go-to jelly donut recipe. While you can't go wrong with the classic raspberry jelly-filled donut, blackberry and grapefruit curd bring sufganiyot to new, beautiful heights.
