What are Granny Smith apples?

Granny Smith apples are medium in size with a bright green and waxy skin.  The flesh is firm, juicy, acidic (tart), and crisp.  This is one of the most ideal apples for baking recipes as the slice hold their shape very well, and it is not overly sweet.

Diced Granny Smith apples

The fruit of the apple tree is one of the most widely cultivated fruit-bearing trees in the world.

The apple originated in Asia Minor and grew wild in Europe by prehistoric times.  Cold storage with carbon dioxide ensures a year-round supply. The American red delicious accounts for over 1/2 of the apple trade.

The apple is the most popular fruit in the US, Canada, Britain, Germany, and France.

"As American as apple pie" is a testament to the dedication of the US to the first fruit planted in the United States.  It was carried to the US West by the legendary Johnny Appleseed (1854).

Apples are best as a dessert fruit from October to April. They should be firm, without blemishes or wrinkles.

Sliced Granny Smith apples

## Preservation

Ripe apples can be stored in a ventilated room stalk side down when picked.   Apples can also be sliced into rings and dried. Cooked apples also freeze well and can be turned into jellies and jam preserves such as the American Apple Butter.

Whole wheat flour and walnuts make the crust nutty and tasty, instead of all butter, use some butter and some canola oil to reduce the saturated fat without reducing the yummy flavor and texture. Granny smith and some delicious apricot jam are enough to make this tart shine.
