Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, began last night, kicking off eight nights of celebration. But whether you celebrate the Jewish holiday or not, you can still get in the spirit with traditional foods. After you've had your filling of crisp potato latkes, try your hand at another fried delight: sufganiyot, an Israeli jelly doughnut covered in powdered sugar. To make the pillowy balls of dough, use yeast, sugar, lukewarm milk, egg yolks and any zest of your choice (try orange or lemon) in small batches. Fry them to a golden brown, then fill the cooled rounds with raspberry or strawberry jam and prepare for a holiday celebration.
