At least it does to me. I recently have enjoyed some wonderful apple-cider donuts. First, I enjoyed a crispier version at Marker-Miller Orchards, just west of Winchester, Va. They were very good (see above). Then I had apple-cider donuts at Terhune Orchards, which is located a few miles outside of Princeton, N.J. Terhune's were softer and more traditional. But both versions were delicious.
If you're ever near Princeton during the fall season, give Terhune a try. This is their website. Marker-Miller's website is here.
For those who have never tried apple-cider donuts, the apple cider flavor in these donuts is very subtle -- not overwhelming.
