The apple can be traced back to the Romans and Egyptians who introduced them to Britain and finally to America. Today, Americans eat about 120 apples apiece each year. At least 50% of the domestic crop is used in items we use every day such as, applesauce, juice, jellies, pies and other popular desserts. (Wellness Encyclopedia of Food and Nutrition, 1992).
Available year round, Granny Smith apples impart a mouthwatering tartness to each delicious bite. Bright green in color with a pink blush, these apples have a crisp bite and a tangy flavor. Its tartness really comes through when baked and sauteed. Enjoy Granny Smiths out of hand, or in a salad.
