I have a recipe to share with you tomorrow that is inspired by our annual first day of Autumn ritual of going to B.F. Clyde’s Cider Mill in Connecticut.

We are not the only ones as there are literally lines of cars parked off to the side of the road.

Lines to sample their wines, hard ciders, kettle corn….

Fresh apple cider as well as the apple cider donuts. Who needs a cup?

They also have a great store filled with every type of butter, syrup, jelly and relish you can dream up. Plus, they even have a second store full of all kinds of home decor and the grass there will soon be covered with pumpkins.

Watching apples go from the truck into the mill….

Any guess to what inspired recipe I am sharing tomorrow?

Let me start with “I LOVE B.F. Clyde”! I live in TN but am from MA. Visited in 09 with my sister, who now lives in CT. We all went there and I have never forgotten the experience. I liked them on FB so I get all their post. Would so love to just take a ride over to get products but especially have craved the apple cider and the apple cider donuts. Have been looking around for recipes and came across yours. As soon as I saw Clydes story, I knew it was B.F. Clyde you were talking about. I even wondered if they gave their recipes out. Is this theirs or one that you found? Found my donut pan this week so I plan on trying these. Thanks so much. Also am following you on some things with Pinterest. Grew up in MA for the first 14 yrs of my life and then we moved to West. TN with Tupperware. Plant has been closed now since 92, but I married and my kids and grandkids are all here in this general area. Parents and brother still here. Sister and all my cousins in NE! I love NE and miss the food, sights and relatives very much. Get up there every so often. My biggest food miss is clam cakes and chowder.
