The last ear of corn has been shucked, the last tomato plucked, and the last peach peeled. The lazy days of summer are over, but there’s no need to mourn. The new fall season brings with it a whole host of fresh ingredients, and none are better loved than apples. Many families make a tradition of visiting a nearby orchard to pick their own apples, and they make sure to grab a bag of apple cider doughnuts, a staple at orchard bake shops. If a trip to the orchard isn’t on your to-do list, it’s easy to make a batch of your own. With a cup of strong coffee, they are a delicious way to begin a crisp autumn day.
