The key to how to eat it is recommended to heat the skin as a whole.This is because the peel and the fruit contain insoluble pectin, which changes to water-soluble pectin when heated, and oligosaccharides increase.It is also recommended to cut the skin and heat it in the microwave or fry it in a frying pan.
