My sister brought a big bag of Granny Smith green apples (grade 4139) for me today. It is not the grade that I usually buy. The size is much smaller. Pretty cute.
When I bake apples, I tend to opt for Granny Smith green apples. One of the reason that I know is that it gives a better texture and taste. Some bakers also used Gala apples. With the influx of Fuji apples and the prices are getting cheaper (from China) as compared to the past.
Perhaps, I might explore using Fuji apples one of these days. Here is my Apple Crumble using Granny Smith green apples.
