Crab Apples May Protect Heart Health
Crab Apples Are Known To Protect Against Cardiovascular And Circulatory Disease
Crab apples are small, yellow-red, sour fruits of crab apple trees which grow wild in woodlands and hedgerows of the UK. The fruits ripen in autumn.
They are a good source of fibre, vitamin C and minerals (especially potassium).
The soluble fibre may lower blood cholesterol and may help to protect against heart and circulatory disease.
Crab apples are usually stewed and made into sharp-tasting jelly which is served with meats, etc.
They are too sour to be eaten raw so they must always be cooked and require additional sugar.
