The apple is the fruit of the apple tree and is the most popular fruit in Germany: every German eats up to 17 kilos of apples a year. Although there are over 20,000 different apple varieties worldwide, only a few known varieties cover the majority of the market. An apple consists of over 80% water and contains many important nutrients, for example over 30 vitamins and trace elements and valuable minerals such as iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium. The pectin in apples is also good for our body: it binds pollutants and washes them out and lowers the cholesterol level. So that you can benefit from all the good nutrients, you should eat the apple with the peel, because it contains a good 70% of the vitamins and other nutrients. It is best to wash the apple briefly before consumption or to buy organically grown apples so that no pesticides or other environmental pollutants are eaten. The fruit has been consumed and processed for a long time. Already the Celts and Germanic peoples cooked apples to puree and extracted cider and mead from them. It has also been used as a medicinal plant since pre-Christian times. As an old home remedy, it is used raw and rubbed against diarrhea, apple cider vinegar relieves sore throats and throat infections and apple tea is said to help against nervousness. Thanks to its fruit acid and fiber, apples also have a cleaning effect on our teeth. Apples are versatile in the kitchen. They taste delicious even raw and can be sour to sweet, depending on the variety. But the apple has also proven itself in fruit salads, on cakes or with hearty dishes. He is a real all-rounder and an indispensable part of our kitchen.
