Granny Smith Apples are great value and fantastic eating this week - they are now perfectly matured and have sweetened up nicely. Apples are high in dietary fibre and also contain potassium, vitamin C, and essential minerals such as calcium and zinc. Granny Smith’s tangy flavour is perfect for cooking, especially crumbles, pies, cakes and sauces.
HOW TO PICK
Choose firm, brightly coloured apples. The flesh of the apple should not give way to finger pressure.
HOW TO STORE
Store apples away from direct sunlight, preferably in the fridge. Place them in a plastic bag to help keep them juicy and firm. If you prefer eating apples at room temperature, simply remove a few from the fridge each day. Don't store apples with pears or avocados as they produce a natural gas that speeds the ripening of those fruits.
