Ingredients: Fresh Cucumbers
If the cucumbers are home-grown or from a farmers market:
- they may have spines; remove them by rubbing a cloth along the length of the cukes.
- wash and dry.
- cut off and discard both ends, but leave the peel on.
If the cucumbers are store-bought:
- If they're wrapped in plastic, treat like home-grown.
- If they're not wrapped, then the skins are probably waxed; cut off the ends and peel 'em.
Cut the cukes in chunks and blend in a powerful blender until completely pureed.
If your blender isn't powerful, strain through a wire mesh strainer.
