Simply push a lemon through your juicer right before you begin juicing your apple. The apple peel carries some of its nutritional value. If you chose not to juice the apple peel, then you will not receive the abundant source of vitamin A that the apple peel carries. It is always better to juice with the peel on so that you can enjoy all the nutrients the apple has to offer! You should also wash your apples before you juice them. This is because they are covered in a very thin layer of wax to help preserve the apple’s moisture. A good portion of the vitamin C content is just underneath the skin. Also, as the apple ripens, the skin retains a lot of its nutrients and flavor. So allowing a little bit of time for them to ripen before you juice them will improve the great tasting value of your fresh home made apple juice.
