Otherworldly Cukes


Take a look at these amazing fruits! And yes, cukes are fruits. 90 percent water, and wickedly abundant in our garden.

(...and get your mind out of the gutter.)

I try to use at least one full cuke a night -in green salads, vinegar-based Asian-inspired salads, piled on falafel, yogurt soups, Greek stuff....

I'm looking for cucumber recipes - particularly pickles. I wasn't wild about my garlic refrigerator pickles last year. Suggestions?

  1. My husband hates pickles with such passion that he can't even handle them in the same room (the smell, the taste, everything!). I've been wanting to try these bread and butter pickles so bad...but I think he might kick me out of the house if he found them in the fridge! ;)
