Where are the best (freshly made) cider donuts within an hour or two of Boston? I've had the ones at Goodale Orchards (near Crane's Beach) and I wasn't that impressed. Hot and fresh, to be sure, but not much oomph. A few years ago I had superb ones in some little shack on a side road somewhere in Central Mass., but I have no idea even what town I was in (it was probably in the vicinity of North Brookfield, but I'm not sure), let alone what road I was on.
Many thanks in advance for your suggestions.
I really like the ones at Applecrest Farms in Hampton Falls , NH. I am not an outdoorsy person and my version of apple picking is buying the apples at the farm stand. Yet, I drive an hour EVERY year (sometimes more than once) just for these donuts. It is a nice place too especially if you have children. They have entertainment on weekends and a pick-your-own pumpkin patch.
Can you give a brief explanation of what a cider donut is? Just for us folks following along from afar. I suppose cider is an ingredient, which makes it start to sound good ...
Don't know if they actually have donuts, so this may not be terribly helpful, but the best cider I have found in the area is at Dowse Orchards in Natick on the Sherborn line, Rt. 27.
