It’s time to embrace one of fall’s ultimate delights: the apple cider doughnut.
They beckon at farm stands this time of year as the aromas of sweet cider and just-baked goodness fill the air. Dusted in cinnamon and sugar — and preferably still warm — cider doughnuts are a must-have treat.
Here’s where to enjoy the autumnal favorite on the North Fork. Get ‘em while they’re hot!
