I used to make doughnuts for my kids and this is what I used to inject custard, jam, blueberry sauce or any filling into the doughnuts. Get them at Target, K-Mart, etc. They're about 75 cents each. If the filling you're using is very thick, just snip off the tips of the containers to make the hole bigger.

Those bottles are a good idea. You could also use a pastry bag with a long tip.

I also have one of those bottles for drizzling olive oil onto a dish or casserole. I can have total control over the drizzling process and the amount I use, rather than drizzling directly from the olive oil bottle.

That's a pretty good idea about those ketchup and mustard bottles. A syringe might work if you removed the needle (unless you have really thin filling).

If you want to use a syringe - you need to get a large "irrigation" syringe - you might be able to get one at your local drug store/chemist. They are not designed to have a needle attached - they are similar to the tips on the plastic condiment bottles posted by DramaQueen but larger in diameter.

I prefer a pastry bag with a metal or plastic tip. I find they are easier to use, especially if using a thick jam or pastry filling.

I really like the ketchup and mustard bottle idea as well, very cool! Otherwise if the jam you want to use is thicker or has some chunks in it you will have to go with the pastry bag with metal tip as Michael suggested.

All you need is a 5-6 qt pot (dutch oven, sauce pot, etc.) and a fry thermometer ... and enough oil to fill it no more than 2/3 full. Since fried donuts cook on the surface - the surface area is more important than the depth.
