Do you have a favorite type of cucumber?
I've never been too big of a fan of cucumber- I like it in couscous salads, but leave it out of garden salads. Sometimes I'll eat it with a little tabasco, salt, and lemon juice- but that usually means I'm just trying to get rid of it. I've always heard that English cucumbers were the best- that they had smaller seeds, were less bitter, the peels are edible. DH brought home a short fat cucumber the other day and I was so not looking forward to dealing with it. But man, was it tasty! Even my kids loved it, and they haven't liked cucumber until now. So, I'm confused. I did a quick google search and people are still rehashing the same old cucumber logic. Was this just an exceptionally good cucumber or is the English cucumber overrated after all. (It was from the grocery store- not organic.) What's your opinion?
