This is the full list of things my dad says apple skins contain: Pigments, polyphenolics, terpenoids, cell walls, waxy cuticles, farnesene, sugars, proteins, dna etc. We were never allowed to peel our vegetables or apples growing up, and now I feel very naughty doing so. Another word on the crepe pan – it’s great for making tortillas and roti too.

    When my children were little and I was still obsessing over every piece of nutrient, I used to peel the carrots in strips, making them ‘zebra carrots’ because I wanted them to eat the carrots, but I also wanted them to get all the nutrients, and they preferred their carrots without peel, because without peel the carrots are much sweeter.

    Love your crepe pan. What a great birthday present.

    DNA? Surely there is no DNA in apples?

    One of my favourite puddings as a child was apples stuffed with dates. Then you were allowed to put on lashings of cream. No one knew about cholesterol then. Knowledge isn’t always a great thing!
