Food, Shopping

Where to find apple cider doughnuts…

Signs that fall has arrived in New England: leaves of gold, red and orange. Crisp, cool nights. Apple harvests and overflowing pumpkin patches.

And with it comes a bounty of autumn-flavored goodness: apple cider, apple and pumpkin pies, and the indulgence in apple cider doughnuts.

We all have our favorite apple cider doughnuts, since no two shops make them the same. In many cases, the recipes are family secrets known only by a few family members and trusted staffers.

We asked around the office for recommendations — for staff members’ go-to spots for apple cider doughnuts. Of course, they came up with more than a few. By no means are these the only options, but they are the ones our staff members frequent.
