We woke up early and drove to Golden Harvest Farms in Valatie. We chose this spot apparently they have the best cider donuts. And they do.
We set out to pick a ½ bushel of apples and started by taste testing all the available varieties. The jonagolds are definitely my favorite. Then we picked up a ½ dozen donuts (+2 for immediate consumption) and apple cider.
I put those apples to work.
(Right before I rolled out the dough, I realized that I don’t own a rolling pin. I found that a cling wrapped a wine bottle rolled dough quite nicely.)
