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).

Health benefits:
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.

Disadvantages:
They are too sour to be eaten raw so they must always be cooked and require additional sugar.
