Chuck MalloryImagine my dismay when one day, about a year ago, I got a hankering for apple butter. I had never seen it at my local farmers' market, so I went to the “local” Jewel grocery store (Jewel-Osco/Albertsons/Safeway, and maybe a different name where you are; I know it’s different from Kroger/Ralphs/Food4Less/Harris Teeter).

I couldn’t find it. The first young clerk said, “I haven’t heard of that, but you might check dairy.” When I told him it was not dairy, but more like applesauce, he led me over to the applesauce. “It’s not here, I already looked,” I said.

So apparently they didn’t carry it. I tried another clerk on another aisle, who said, “It must be jams/jellies.” We found it – two lone jars of apple butter on the bottom shelf. I picked up one and dusted off the lid.

“Hmm,” she said, “that doesn’t look right. Check the expiration date.”

“It’s supposed to be brown,” I said. “It’s not applesauce. It has cinnamon and spices in it.”

“Oh, it’s like cinnamon applesauce,” she said. “So why isn’t it pink?”
