Granny Smith Apples

Granny Smith Apples

Granny Smith apples were created by "Granny" Anne Smith of Ryde, New South Wales in 1868. Let that sit. It was actually invented by someone named Granny Smith. Amazing. Bakers use Granny Smith apples for pie fillings and other preparations because they can withstand high heat without turning to mush. After baking, Granny Smith apples are sweet, with their acidity cooled and caramelized into sugars. But some don’t want sweet; they crave tartness. The Granny Smith apple has them covered. Granny Smith apples are grass green when ripe but will develop a warm, pale cast with a slight blush as they continue to ripen. At this point, their tartness will have mellowed, though it remains a tart apple in comparison to milder varieties like the Red Delicious.
