How do you recommend freezing your donuts?

Sunrise Orchard Response:

Sunrise apple cider donuts both sugared and plain freeze well. To freeze our fresh-baked donuts, remove donuts from the bag/box and place in a heavy-duty freezer bag. The side with the sugar should be facing up. Push as much as air possible out of the bag and seal the top almost all the way to the edge, leaving about a quarter-inch unsealed.  Slide a straw into the unsealed section of the bag. Gently suck the air out of the bag through the straw. This is the secret to keeping donuts fresh!  The donuts will maintain their best quality for about 3 months, however will remain safe to eat beyond that time.

To thaw and reheat donuts, here are three methods:

Counter: The easiest way to defrost frozen donuts is to take them out of the freezer and let them sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.  Keep them in the container they were frozen in.  Once thawed, eat as is or reheat them.

Microwave: If you want your frozen donuts defrosted quickly, then the microwave serves a double purpose. It will thaw them, as well as reheat them.  Place the donut in an open microwave save plastic bag.  Microwave frozen donuts for 10 to15 seconds on 50% power.  Allow to cool down a little before eating.

Oven:The oven can thaw and reheat donuts at the same time.  Preheat the oven to 350°F. Take donuts from the freezer and place in an oven safe container or baking sheet.  Place in the oven for between 5 to 7 minutes.  Check if it’s warmed to your liking.  Remove, let cool a little and enjoy.

We also have donuts for sale frozen in a plastic clam, ready for your freezer or for thawing.
