The Granny Smith Apple was created by a lady named Maria Ann Smith in Australia around 1868. The apple is also named for its creator. That's where the name Granny Smith came from.

Do you know that even today there is still an annual Granny Smith Festival in Eastwood New South Wales.

The Granny Smith Apple is a tart apple with firm flesh and it is excellent for either eating or cooking. I just simply love it in apple pies or apple butter. If you've never had apple butter made from Granny Smith apples you have not yet lived.

Granny Smith Oven Apple Butter

8 Granny Smith Apples Peeled and diced fine.

1 Cup Of Apple Juice

1 Cup of Sugar

1 Heaping Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Cook apples and juice in a Dutch Oven over medium heat for 30-45 minutes or until the apples are tender. Stir until apples are mashed up well. Stir in your sugar and cinnamon. Pour your apple mixture into a lightly greased baking dish. Bake uncovered at 275 degrees for 4 - 4 1/2 hours stirring every hour. Pour out into a plasic container with lid and keep refrigerated while you use it as a spread. Try this homemade apple butter on hot toasted raisin bread. You won't find anything that tastes better. Its oh so good.

Granny Smith Apple Pie Recipe

1 1/2 Packages of Refrigerated Pie Crusts Divided

6 Granny Smith Apples Peeled And Sliced

1 1/2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

3/4 Cup Of Light Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Of Sugar

1/3 Cup All Purpose Flour ( Plain Flour ) Use this flour if you need to roll out and cut your pie crusts.

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

Cut one pie crust to fit in the bottom of your pie shell and use a fork to press around the edges to make sure your pie crust stays in place.

Mix all of your other ingredients together in a large bowl and be sure to mix together well. Pour into your pie crust.

Roll the other Pie Crust out so it will fit over the top of your pie. Cut to fit and use a fork to crimp the edges together. Cut three slots in the top of pie crust like in the photo above to let out steam.

Bake in a 450 degree oven ( preheated ) for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 30-35 minutes.

You will have the best Apple Pie you will ever eat.

Jazz Up Your Apple Pie. Kick it up a notch.

Sometimes I jazz up this pie recipe and add 1/2 cup of Golden Raisins to the pie when putting the fruit into the pie. If you do mix your raisins into the fruit well.You can also try grating your apples instead of slicing them.

This pie is absolutely wonderful hot from the oven with a big spoon of vanilla ice cream. And its easy enough to make that if you follow the directions above anyone can make it.
