I suspect that they were naturally sour...I have achieved a similar  
in dishes of all sorts by using Granny Smith apples.  They have a  
tart flavor that works well, particularly in German dishes.>>>

Ah, okay.  When I hear "sour" it makes me think of lemons or vinegar.  
To me, "tart" is much milder, such as you mention for Granny Smith  
apples. Granny Smith apples are commonly available in my grocery  
store, so these weren't some unusual type of apple I'm going to need  
to hunt down.
