Outside the entrance door to a local country farm market, we discovered this enticing little stand. Our noses led us here and our taste buds kept us from leaving:) The big brown paper sign in front of the stand said, "Cider Doughnuts". The aroma filled the air beckoning us to "come and try them". Now, what is a person to do?
This lovely, gracious and friendly young lady was hard at work making doughnuts as fast as possible, and selling them as quickly as she made them. It was her recipe, her business, and, her smile added to the experience. I love seeing business ideas come into fruition, especially when success follows.
Our out-of-state friends could not resist the temptation to buy. The doughnut bag was opened and offered to all of us. Now, what is one to do?
As I sit here posting, with my hot cup of morning coffee, and see these pictures again, I find myself in a difficult situation. Only 6 short miles lay between me and access to some hot, cider doughnuts...what is one to do?
My friends, it all started with the container seated on the side counter of her stand, saying, "Try me". The taste of that tiny sample was not a "good" thing for me. What WAS good, is that I miraculously managed to only eat the sample piece, and was able to turn down those offered from our friend's brown paper bag.
If you ever see a sign along the road for homemade cider doughnuts, I suggest you stop in immediately, especially if you have access, at the time, to a cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk:)
