Where have you found tinned apples? (brand and store and state please, so I can plan how to get some)
We don't consider sardines "canned" fish because they don't come in cans or jars; they come in small tins.

Lucks brand makes something called Fried Apples and Stewed Apples. Again, we eat these warmed & maybe a dab of butter. Forget the brand, but there are also apples in jars. Have had these products for ages now.
Yes, as I said in my post, in America they're not just fruit, they're 'pie filling', with spices and such.

Amazon Best Sellers: Best Canned & Jarred Apples

I've seen them at Harris Teeter, Earth Fare, Publix, Ollies, Big Lots. This is in NC. I've also seen them in Florida in their grocery stores.
Thanks! Most of those on Amazon are not plain apples, but there are a couple of potentials. It seems they're a niche item, I'll have to make a trip to Wegman's, maybe. One, Polar brand, are apparently carried in Walmart, just not my Walmart. They don't carry plain apples in Harris Teeter, only "fried apples".

Back to the thread's topic...I just picked up all the fixings for a dessert for next Thursday. Monkey Bread. I have done it with biscuits or homemade bread dough but the family prefers this version.

Our version:

A bag of Parker House dough rolls
Stick of butter, melted in a bowl
1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of sugar, package of butterscotch pudding and a tsp of cinnamon mixed together in another bowl (Important, make sure it's the cook and serve kind of pudding)
Lightly greased bundt cake pan or tube cake pan

Dip frozen piece of dough into butter, then into sugar mixture and then into a bundt cake pan. Repeat till entire bag is empty. If you have any butter or sugar left, pour on top of the sugared dough pieces.

Set aside and let it thaw. Depending on how cool/warm your house is, it can be about 2-4 hours or so. I also have wrapped pan in plastic wrap and let it stay overnight in fridge. But generally I leave it in the oven with the light on for a couple of hours.

Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 30 - 35 minutes till golden brown. Invert on to a plate and serve.

They are at local markets here, but you can also find them on Amazon. They are the Polar brand Fuji apples in light syrup.

Definition of "tin" and "can" courtesy of the dictionary:

Tin--a container or plate made of metal
Can--c : a container (as of tinplate) in which products (as perishable foods) are hermetically sealed for preservation until use

d : a jar for packing or preserving fruit or vegetables

a closed metal container that is usually shaped like a cylinder and that holds food or drink

I stand corrected. A tin and a can are more or less the same thing. Most people around here, though, use the word "can" when referring to a cylindrical container, and sometimes refer to something in a jar as something "canned." Here, the word "tin" is frequently used to describe decorative metal containers of cookies, dried fruits, or other items usually served during holidays. Taking the contextual definition, one from this region of the U.S. might have guessed you were talking about dried fruit or candied preserves. Around here, we normally do not use the word "tin" when describing "cans." We often think of them as separate things.

No nuts allowed in our baked goods unless it's pecan pie or white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.

I do like nuts by themselves.
