Apple jelly - the lack thereof

plantlust's picture

Has anyone besides me noticed a distinct lack of apple jelly at the grocery store? So far I've checked Whole Paycheck, Dominicks & Meijer. I'm getting a mite curious(this is for the Thyme Scented Apple Galette recipe) if the shortage is everywhere, so I will check Jewel, TJ's & CostPlus World Market next, just for kicks. If I still strike out, I will wing it w/Sure-Jell & apple cider.

The skunks come out around 9pm.  Mother

note to self: Skunks don't listen to Mother...where the heck is the hydrogen peroxide?

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with parsley sauce, goat cheese garlic mashed potatoes, Galena Cellars Niagra grape wine & Pie Boss's apple crumble topped with Ruth & Phil's sour cream/cinnamon ice cream.

No law that says you have to try it. I'm going to if I can find the apple jelly.

I've seen it in three separate grocery stores 'round here. Store brand and Smuckers. :-)

No plans to try it but I love the name!

It is a cajun recipe I believe--or at least Louisiana.

Jean, I don't think I said that.  Having already made a version of it for many years i was only commenting that I don't think the additions would add to its goodness--mainly because it will dilute the "heat".  Just trying to speak about "experience". Sorry.   I might like the idea of subbing the orange marmalade for the pineapple--and if you can't find the apple, it only added "sweet" and "volume" to me. Have it your way, however.  ;o)  I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Publix (Florida) has apple jelly under its own brand.  Email me if you'd like me to send you a couple of jars.

We have an ethnic market that always has apple, pineapple, mint, and jalapeno jelly.

And cheap.

Just a thought.

I noticed the absence of apple jelly on the grocery shelves when I bought a jar of peanut butter and decided to get apple jelly to mix with it and couldn't find in at our local Winn Dixie store.  They had everything but apple jelly.  I was in Walgreens and decided to look for apple jelly to no avail and to my surprise, I looked in Walmart and there were only 3 jars of apple jelly manufactured by Smuckers!!  I realize now that I should have bought all of it!  What is happening to the apple jelly industry??

Too bad, I think it is a matter of changing tastes-- done in by the popularity of grape jelly! I think there was a suggestion below to check ethnic markets. Good luck...
