A small rant:
Unless you live in a large metropolitan area, never believe him when he says some of these crazy ingredients can be found in your local mega-mart. I live in the suburban Twin Cities.. Dear hubby, a retired chef and baker, wants to make the super apple pie - the one in the tart pan.
First, it is not a tart pan but a quiche pan. The tart pan is only about an inch high. We need the two-inch. Only available on line (Williams-Sonoma) after checking the usual suspects. Had to be ordered. Out of stock in all of the local stores. Even reached out to a local baker who told me this size pan is hit or miss for availability.
Second, the ingredients - apple jelly, tapioca flour and Grains of Paradise. No grocery store had the grains or the apple jelly. We are subbing the recommended ground cardamom and black pepper, but cannot find the apple jelly anywhere. On line, even, is out of stock. Smuckers was the only site that seemed to have anything, but that is gonna include shipping. Found the last bag of tapioca flour at the fourth and final store I checked for these things.
Not sure where he is getting his ingredients but no one should have to come up empty after four stores, two of them upscale and respected. Local mega-mart indeed.
