I don't peel a lot - only bananas probably, and potatoes when making chips - I love the skins on jacket spuds!

I buy organic so hope I am geeting less chemicals.
Fruits/vegs I peel are the ones where youve no choice but to peel - oranges, banana, avocado, potatoes if makin mash

Quite frankly I reckon it's a waste of time peeling fruit that do'nt necessarily need it (apples, pears etc...), just think of all the crap in the air we breathe....

The Food Standards Agency recommends that you should wash and peel veg (probably talking non-organic here). I really don't know how effective that is from removing pesticide residues etc. But def wash apples before eating.

I don't peel or wash much. I eat apple cores. I only guy organic though as I don't want to eat chemicals.

Love jacket spuds!

Wonder if I could persuade DavidB to peel me a grape.

I wash every day and only peel if I stay out in the sun too long.

Oh dear - I've missed the point of this thread haven't I?

With fruit I just eat the whole thing - core, skin, pips, stick if it has one. I eat some orange skin but normally not the whole lot, not banana skin though.

I eat most skins, tho draw the line at oranges, Popsider! It's partly taste and partly laziness.
FR, how does one peel a mushroom?
I was also a whole apple eater as a kid.

You silly people.

Just go to Marks and Spencer. They do all that tiresome peeling, scraping, chopping stuff.

If you buy the veg that is microwaveable in the bag, you dont even have to touch the wrteched stuff before throwing it in the bin after your meal.

As ALF once famously said.

"That's not food. That's what food eats"

New potatoes I only gently scrape the loose skin away, if I am mashing potatoes then I peel otherwise I leave skin on. Jacket Potatoes which have crispy skin are the best!

I do however peel apples as I cannot digest the skin, also Oranges and Bananas. I cannot imagine people eating the core! Uh Yuk!

As to mushrooms I give then a really good wash twice, but certainly do not peel, much to fiddly for me.

We have a composter bin in our garden and its always full, we recycle as much as we can to save money. However I do leave it up to husband to empty as it fair smells and has lots of insects inside including spiders!!!!!!.

01/06/2003 at 18:52

Dont understand whats funny:)

I once saw a Delia programme, and she recommended keeping cheese in the spare bedroom which has the heating switched off. I kid you not! Spare bedroom - my entire living space is just a bedroom!

Apple seeds contain cyanide, by the way.
