The unusual shape of these donuts makes the distinction between the round , hole in the middle, Homestead donuts and the Eskimo donut
2 pkg of yeast
2 cups of lukewarm water-divided
1 tsp salt
2 tblsp sugar
2 to 3 tblsp vegetable oil
4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup raisins
Oil for frying
Dissolve yeast in one cup of warm water and let stand for 6 minutes. Pour into large mixing bowl and add the remaining lukewarm water. Add salt and sugar, raising and oil. Mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, after the third cups start kneading. Knead until smooth. Let rise one hour. Punch down and let rise another hour. Pinch off dough and stretch it a bit, not to thick, make several holes in it. Unlike the white mans donuts, these are not perfectly round. Deep fry in medium hot oil. They can be any shape. Brown on both sides and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar.

STEAMED OR BAKED VEGETABLES WITH FISH
This is one of my favorites and so fast and easy.
Layer in steam basket or in pan for baking:
1/2 teaspoon olive oil in pan for baking-rub olive oil on steamer
1 potato sliced very thin
1 carrot sliced very thin
Small amount of broccoli-sliced thin
1 small zucchini sliced thin
1 medium onion sliced thin
1 medium piece of salmon, halibut or turbot
Sprinkle small amount of olive oil over top
1 teaspoon lemon juice or sprinkle with lemon pepper
Steam for approx 15 minutes until potatoes are done
or bake 30 minutes in 350% oven. Add salt if desired.
I have eaten this for years and never get tired of it.
