A few things I miss about Boston...

One of the vendors at the Go Green Expo yesterday grew up around Cape Cod, so we discussed some of the foods that we miss about "back home": Portuguese linguisa, Brazilian cuisine (all of it), and apple cider donuts. It's surprising that the last one isn't available here, given the prevalence of apple orchards. Apple cider donuts are staples of the fall apple season in New England, and they are seriously the best tasting donuts you will ever eat! However, when I attended the fall harvest fest this year at the apple orchard down the street, complete with fresh pressed cider and baked apple goods, they stared at me blankly when I asked about apple cider donuts and told me they'd never heard of them. If there's something that would be great to transplant to this area, cider donuts would be it!

Update: Here is an article in the Washington Post, attempting to decribe the indescribably good apple cider donuts, complete with recipe.
