Man, the cider donuts at Russell Orchards are so awesome
Crispy outside, moist inside and warm from the fryer. Pure heaven, washed down with an ice cold glass of unpasteurized cider. This is what fall in New England is all about. Smallish Macs on the trees with a lot of spots, not so pretty but tasty and will be great for baking.
The donuts we had last weekend at Brooksby Farm, in contrast, were stale and dry with a weird bitter taste. Plus the woman who seems to run the farmstand is always so unpleasantly bitchy, especially to kids. And the Macs there were so sour- no way they were ripe for picking. Galas were very good.
