Granny Smith

So, earlier today, I picked up some freshly-picked organic Granny Smith apples along with some other great produce at the Shangri-La Farm stand in Fern Prairie. And, upon getting home, I sliced one, and munched on it, then decided to make an Apple Crumble.

This is a slightly revised recipe from RecipeTinEats. Since it was a trial, we cut everything in half for our version, and it turned out great!

It takes 12-15 minutes to prepare, then another 40 minutes to bake in the over. And, even though the photo doesn’t show it, we highly recommend eating it with vanilla ice cream. It makes it even that much better.

Fresh Granny Smith apples.


  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  • Peel apples, then cut into 1.5cm/ 3/5” cubes (I opted to not peel my apples since they were just picked. It enhanced the flavor and texture).
  • Place apple in a bowl. Sprinkle with flour, sugar and cinnamon, then pour over lemon juice. Toss, then spread out evenly I’m a 1.5 litre/1.5 quart baking dish. 
  • Place Topping ingredients in a bowl. Mix until clumps form, like wet sand. Spread over the apples, crumbling with fingers if required to get that crumbly topping.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove, cover loosely with foil to keep warm and let stand for 10 minutes before serving (let’s the apple filling come together).
