Hello Readers, and Happy Monday!
This month I would like to highlight the cucumber. Here in Massachusetts cucumbers are in peak season and it makes a lot of sense. Cucumbers are have an extremely high water and fiber content aiding in hydration and weight loss. As you may already know, hydration is a small problem that has many large solutions, from fatigue, stress, cramp spasms and hunger, adding cucumbers into your rotation of produce will help make up for the water you don’t drink during the day.
The cucumber season in MA lasts from June to August, my recommendation is that here at the end of July you should make your own pickles for the upcoming fall and winter.
Here is a really simple recipe I like to use from the Food Network. It is a great way to store cucumbers for the upcoming season and can last up to two months!
Over the next few posts I will be sharing ideal fruits and veggies to pickle and when so when October and November hit we will have a variety of homemade special ingredients to choose from to spice up our recipes!
