So, last week when I opened up my CSA bag, I found these little guys.
And when I say little, I mean little. Maybe 4 inches long or so.
Instead of doing my own research, I just went straight to Facebook and Twitter. Because you people are smart. I posted the above photo and of course immediately had bazillions of responses from people.
And the consensus was…lemon cucumbers. And while I’m obviously no expert, I think you’re all right (or at least close to right!).
Cate loves cucumbers. They’re her favorite veggie, hands down. So it was lots of fun cutting into these with her.
I must admit, they didn’t taste that different from the regular cucumbers. The texture was a bit more tender and juicy, but bottom line, they taste like cucumbers. But they were delicious and it sure was fun to try something new! Another 10 points for joining a CSA…
While we’re here…if you have any good cucumber recipes to share, please do!
