Granny Smith apples are best suited for both raw and cooked applications, including baking or roasting. When fresh, the crisp apples provide a tart flavor that is primarily enjoyed fresh, out-of-hand. The flesh can be sliced and tossed into green salads, quartered and displayed on fruit platters, sliced and served with nut butter, blended into smoothies, or thinly sliced and layered into sandwiches. In addition to raw applications, Granny Smith apples are popularly used in cakes, cobblers, crisps, and pies, as the flesh holds its shape when cooked and does not discolor rapidly. Granny Smith apples pair well with sharp cheeses such as blue, feta, and gorgonzola, meats such as poultry, pork, and beef, arugula, spinach, potatoes, beets, and fruits such as banana, citrus, and pineapple.
