Garden Food: Cucumber Water

If you’re looking for something to do with all those summer cucumbers here’s an option, cucumber water.

Our family recipe is outlined below:

  • pick five or six medium-sized cucumbers and wash thoroughly
  • peel, if desired – we like to leave the peel on for the extra color and nutrition.
  • dice into medium to small pieces
  • place in blender
  • add water
  • Add the juice of 10 or 12 small limes – optional
  • add a few leaves of fresh Mint – optional
  • blend well
  • pour into a two-quart pitcher and top off with water
  • add your favorite sweetener to taste
  • serve over ice or refrigerate to serve later.

Now, you have a quick and healthy summer drink and you have to use your cucumbers.
