baked in its skin
'). I believe this is a British
ism, or whatever the word is. In the U.S. this would be called a baked potato
. You get all of the nutrient
s from the skin, plus texture - A jacket potato can be eaten with all kinds of fatty toppings, like butter
or sour cream
. Meat-eating people may add bacon
. Others might add cheese
What nutrients are in the skin? From what i can tell, calcium, potassium and fiber figure among them. I just eat it with the skin for the texture and the pop/tear when the skin breaks.
This definition was a chatterbox request.
