GUEST,Patsy BS: The Cucumber (51* d) RE: BS: The Cucumber 27 Jul 14

Although the cucumber is pretty bland it does go surprisingly well in Pimms or Punch together with apple and a sprig of mint lovely. My mother has always served cucumber in vinegar sprinkled with pepper just to give it a little bit of oomph to add to salads. I like it cut into sticks with carrot etc. to serve with a dip. Very handy to have with the barbecue while waiting to see whether or not you get a properly cooked piece of meat or a charred offering! I have been to a few of those.

I won't let it go to waste and will add remaining cucumber to stir fries or stews. The trouble with cucumber is it doesn't keep very long especially at the moment when the weather is hot (actually hot in Britain!)and tends to end up a wasted wrinkled mess at the bottom of the fridge just when you want it so I tend to make sure that I am going to use the whole thing in cooked recipes as well as in sandwiches or salads. The other thing that I found really good about cucumber is how good it is for cooling a babies gums when teething. My youngest son cut his teeth on a cool cucumber which at the same time was good for him.
