Quick, Before They’re Gone: Sufganiyot

I’ll keep it brief: It’s Hanukkah, and that means it’s time to eat sufganiyot, those jelly- or custard-filled doughnuts that pop up at Jewish bakeries during the holiday season.

Sufganiyot (SOOF-gon-ee-OAT) — which are fried in oil, like a regular doughnut — are traditionally eaten during Hanukkah to commemorate the miracle of the temple oil (when a day’s worth of oil kept the temple menorah lit for eight days).
