Apple Cider and Donuts
An Autumnal favorite where I live! Our Orchard does sell in the summer too. They also add seasonal fruits such as blueberry to their donuts. I love that!
Apple Cider is a traditional Autumn drink which is mostly served Halloween, Thanksgiving and even into Christmas. It can be served spiced, heated, mulled and hard. In most parts of the world Cider refers to a fermented alcoholic drink. Refered to here in the US as hard Cider. The kind I get here locally is unpasteurized and is made from a blend of apples. Yummy alone or you could add Cinnamon, orange peel, nutmeg, cloves or mulling spices.
I've added my folksy take on Cider and Donuts if you'd like see more of them I've listed them here. Now I'm off to dream of fall and make more pumpkins and a cat or two.
