Lemon Cucumbers

20140827-064537.jpg This time of year brings lemon cucumbers. If you have never tried one, and you are a cucumber fan, you must. Of the heirloom variety, these lemon looking cucumber don’t really taste of lemon, they just taste more intensely cucumber-y. The size of a tennis ball, they are packed with flavor. Eat them how you would a regular cucumber–as is, in salads, drinks. My favorite way is just with a generous slice in sparkling water. No need to muddle it or anything, the intense flavor flavoring the water beautifully. Incredibly refreshing.

  2. I have neither seen nor heard of these but how beautiful, they look as if they have been plucked from the canvas of a Still Life.
