Can a Cucumber This Huge Taste Good?
A co-worker chided me for stealing what he thought was a potential prize-winning cucumber from the Benton Franklin Fair!
He was mollified when I informed him that I got this cuke not from the judging table at the fair but instead bought it out off of West Court Street in Pasco. Along with a couple other large cukes that have tasted great, IF you peel them at the ends.
I didn’t realize you could eat the peel of a cucumber until I went to my first salad bar as my mom would completely peel them. Since I found out the skin of a cuke is a great source of dietary fiber wrapping a very low-calorie, tasty vegetable I have been eating the rinds.
But these required a little peeling on the ends to taste GREAT!
