Little Green Apples
Behold. The Granny Smith apple. It is tart, crisp and has a creamy, pale green, dense flesh. Granny Smith is my go-to apple for pie baking. She is the secret ingredient in my sage and sausage stuffing. She is Australian, and named after Maria Ann Smith, who is credited with propagating the first seedling. Hey, I'd take credit for that by naming the fruit after me. Thank you, Maria Ann, for your lovely namesake apple.
