Shopping for Cucumbers
Choose bold green, firm and medium-sized field or pickling cucumbers for optimal taste. Both types keep well in the fridge for three to five days; much longer can lead to ‘chilling’ injuries! Remember to peel waxed cucumbers and remove loose spines by scrubbing pickling cucumbers.
Did you know cucumbers are not vegetables but fruit? Whatever its family, cucumbers are a super food packed with nutrients, water, and soluble fiber. With low calories, cucumbers are a great weight loss choice, and are rich in Vitamins C and K, magnesium, potassium, and manganese. They also contain vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, and zinc.
A high-water content creates the crunch, while the fresh, mild taste complements an unmistakable summertime fragrance—an irresistible combination that adds sunshine to any meal!
