Oliebollen are Back!

An oliebol is a deep-fried and powdered-sugar coated ball of Dutch-dough that is traditionally served around the holiday season (of the Western world) within the Netherlands. The stand litter the streets of all major cities, and the oil from the balls is most often used to soothe an upset stomach that's been made upset due to an excessive intake of alcohol, particularly on New Year's Eve. Personally, I think they're disgusting and have only ever eaten one bite, of one ball, which I immediately spit out. Olliebollen zijn niet voor mij.
