Product Of The Month
Every month we spotlight a bread or product we sell in the cafes. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them.
Did you know there really was a “Granny Smith?” In 1868, midwife Maria Ann Smith, also known as “Granny Smith,” showed a local fruit grower a strange seedling that took root in her family’s New South Wales orchard. Perhaps developed from the remains of discarded French crab apples piled on their property, she transplanted the seedling, and as they say, the rest is history. It wasn’t until the 1890s, over 20 years after her passing, that Australian orchardists began growing the variety, which quickly became a worldwide hit. The apple seedling was introduced to the U.S. in the early 1970s.
We’re carrying on Granny Smith’s tradition with our Apple Pull-Aparts. The chopped tangy and tart beauties are tossed in cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg and spread over a layer of our brioche dough. Rolled up and baked to perfection, the loaf is drizzled with stripes of powdered sugar glaze.
With four servings apiece, Apple Pull-Aparts will make a lovely addition to your Mother’s Day brunch menu, and they pair perfectly with a mid-morning cup of tea or coffee.
