When making apple pies in England Bramley apples are the apples of choice. Here I have found Granny Smith to be similar in flavor but not in texture. What tart apples to you recommend for use in apple pies?I have a wonderful Dutch Apple Pie recipe that I intend to make for the holidays.
I'm in SW Florida so depend on what gets trucked in, no apple growers here!!

Those are some very nice resources; I wish I didn't need to stick with the commercially available varieties. I will give it a try!! Thanks.
