Appleland Orchard

Since unpasteurized cider can legally be sold only at the orchard that presses it (a handful in New England still do this), it’s a 40-year-old tradition to trek to Appleland in the fall. The cider is an unbeatable blend of Macs, Empires, and Delicious apples, whose nectarlike taste will make you swoon.

The doughnuts have a tastes-like-Grandma-used-to-make flavor and texture, with cinnamon-sugar on top. Though it’s hard to discern a cider taste, the cider definitely gives these doughnuts a special lightness.
