I am obsessed.

It started with the simple Sugar Rush posting on Serious Eats NY: apple cider donuts.  Yes, I usually think about these glorious cake donuts with the cinnamon sugar coating in the fall when the air is starting to get crisp and apples are our (only) fruit of choice.  The farmers start selling hot apple cider and if you’re lucky, the donuts.  I’ve been commenting for the past couple of years that while we have many apples available at the Hudson Farmers Market in the fall there are no donuts.  For that, you have to travel to the Kinderhook.  Or maybe Rhinebeck.

But, the posting mentioned that Migliorelli Farm, located in nearby Tivoli with seasonal farm stands in Red Hook and near the Kingston Bridge, had the best tasting ones at the Union Square Farmers Market in NYC.  I’m in NYC at the moment and went 3 times (!) but no donuts.  Sold out.

The fourth time was the charm.

So forget all the pining for the first foods of spring.  Think instead: Mmmm, donuts…

This weekend the obsession will be maple syrup, since it is Maple Syrup weekend in NY State.  I’m hoping to come away with some (Grade B) syrup if not some candy or other goodies.

I’m going to need to exercise off all these obsessions.  sigh.

  3. […] Just yesterday I wished that there was somewhere to buy a vegetable for my dinner without having to get in my car.  While wandering around, I found that Migliorelli Farm (located in Tivoli) has opened a shop on the corner of Warren and 3rd Street which will be open year round!  The walls are colorful and covered in recipes and lists of available produce.  They are very newly opened and still bringing in product – at the moment they have fresh produce from the farm, as well as some pastries, bagels, and apple cider.  I am hoping that we will soon see their apple cider donuts.
