From a reader, Timothi Kae Mahaffey, in the Allegheny mountains of Pennsylvania-Warren:
“I hope you can help me with this one. Years ago, I visited Orange Lake, Florida, where my grandparents lived during the winter. There was a spread that was thick and you put it on toast like a jam/jelly/marmalade, and I think it had honey, coconut, and orange flavoring.
“When I see apple butter, I am reminded of it. Even though that was 47 years ago, I am hoping it is still available either to buy and/or make. It was a fantastic item that reminds me of Florida and the oranges we ate while there.
“Have you any idea what it could be? If there are several possibilities, let me know; I will make them and hopefully fill a memory.”
I don’t know of any spread like this off the top of my head – but will begin researching it. Do any of you readers know of this, or know if it’s a commercial product? Let me know.
