Hanukkah Day Six

Among the many foods prepared in celebration of Hanukkah, many of the foods are fried to commemorate the miracle of the oil. Some of the most popular Hanukkah foods are latkes and jelly donuts, both of which are fried in oil. Since I already did a latkes recipe. I will share an easy jelly donut recipe

Hanukkah Jelly Donuts
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup any flavor fruit jam
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
Add the milk, water, beaten egg, melted butter, sugar, bread flour, salt, nutmeg and yeast into a food processor. As soon as the dough is formed, take it out and place it on a flat surface. Take a rolling pin and roll the dough out to about a 1/4  inch in thickness. Take a cookie cutter, and cut the dough into rounds. You will need two rounds per donuts. Add 1/2 teaspoon of jelly into the center of each round.  Press the top half of the round to the bottom half. Make sure it is sealed tight. Place the donuts on a cookie sheet and cover them with a towel until they rise. Take out your deep fryer or pan of oil. The temperature of the oil must reach 375 degrees. Add 3 or four donuts into the pan. As they become golden brown, turn them over to brown the other side. Once both sides are golden brown, take them out of the fryer and place on a rack to drain and cool. Enjoy!

Tonight will be the sixth night of Hanukkah any you will light the sixth candle. Remember to put the candles in from right to left (like reading Hebrew) and them after you light the Shamash you light the others from left to right.

1st Blessing~Hebrew (Sepharidc/Modern Israeli): Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, asher kiddeshanu b’mitzvotav, vitzivanu, lehadlik ner shel Hanukkah.

English: Blessed are You, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who has sanctified us with Your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the lights of Hanukkah. 
2nd Blesssing~Hebrew (Sepharidc/Modern Israeli): Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, she-asah nissim la-avotaynu bayamim ha-hem bazman hazeh.
English: Blessed are you, Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who wrought miracles for our fathers in days of old, at this season. 

Here are some links that may help out. 

 Here are a few scripture ideas to read the 6th night of Hanukkah.

 15 The people who know the celebratory shout are truly happy! They walk in the light of your presence, LORD!

130 Access to your words[a] gives light, giving simple folk understanding.

16 I will make the blind walk a road they don’t know,  and I will guide them  in paths they don’t know. But I will make darkness before them into light and rough places into level ground. These things I will do; I won’t abandon them.

Philippians 2:15

15 so that you may be blameless and pure, innocent children of God surrounded by people who are crooked and corrupt. Among these people you shine like stars in the world
