Do you have to peel apples when making homemade apple pie?

No, because by doing so you remove most of the healthful phytochemical and flavonoid chemicals contained within the peel, which the apple itself does not have, as well as much of the heart-healthy fiber.
(These are the chemicals responsible for apple's anti-cancer benefits)
