Weird and Wonderful!

September 11, 2012

A friend brought these over, freshly harvested from their backyard garden. From a distance, I thought they were lemons. Closer up, they resembled heirloom tomatoes.

I would have never guessed that they were actually cucumbers!
This particular variety is called a lemon cucumber, and is named for its appearance, not it’s flavor, which is sweeter than the average cucumber.

I can’t wait to try them in a simple cucumber salad with a dash of olive oil, salt, pepper and some rice wine vinegar! Perhaps a little radish and dill for added flavor? Mmmm!
