2 Tbsp (30 mL) ground flax seeds, soaked in ½ cup (125 mL) hot water

2 Tbsp (30 mL) fresh yeast

1 Tbsp (15 mL) baking powder

12 cups (3 L) canola oil

Directions

Jelly

1. In heavy-bottomed saucepan over high heat, cook strawberries and sugar until 220°F (105°C).

2. Make a slurry by whisking together cornstarch, lime zest, lime juice and ½ cup (125 mL) water.

3. Add slurry to berry mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and is boiling for at least 1 minute.

4. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and salt. Scrape into blender; pulse until smooth. Spread on sheet pan to cool.

Dough

1. In bowl, cream together margarine, shortening, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, lemon zest and salt. Stir in flaxseeds. Pour in almond milk.

2. In separate bowl, crumble yeast into flour. Stir in baking powder.

3. Fold flour mixture into sugar mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 48 hours.

4. On floured surface, roll out dough to ½-inch (1 cm) thickness; using 4-inch (10 cm) round cutter, cut out rounds, re-rolling scraps, if necessary.

5. In heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil to 375°F (190°C). Drop in rounds and fry, in batches, for 90 seconds. Flip with chopsticks; fry for another 90 seconds.

6. Remove to rack to cool. Once cool, cut small hole in side of each; pipe jelly into middle.
