Q: Should I eat Jazz Apples along with the skin?
A: It is a good idea to eat Jazz Apples with their skin. Almost half of the vitamin C content is just underneath the skin. It would also increase insoluble fibre content consumption, which stimulates the movement of food through the digestive tract, keeping your bowel and colon healthy. Just remember to wash them thoroughly. A tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of baking soda can be added to a sinkful of water to make a good scrubbing solution. This can remove the wax and any pesticides which might be trapped underneath it.
