An Apple a Day….



One of the incredible benefits of living in South East Queensland is being near Stanthorpe. This area is famous for their wines but also their apples.

Guess what April is Granny Smith Apple Season.

The Granny Smith Apple is one of the best cooking apples with a tangy flavor. When fully mature the sweetness level of this popular apple increases.

This Australian native was discovered in 1868 as a chance seedling by “Granny” Anne Smith of Ryde, New South Wales. Grannys are known for the distinctive green flesh, which sometimes bears a red blush, and their very tart flavour. An all-purpose apple, Grannys work equally well as a snack, in pies or as a sauce.

This weekend at the markets it was a joy to see all the Stanthorpe producers with their trucks loaded with fresh apples.

So I thought I would share some of my favourite apples recipes using my favourite apple the Granny Smith.
