Excess garden produce.

July 14, 2010 6:43am CST
I have a glut of cucumbers in the greenhouse, even after planting the seeds at different times the cucumbers seem to be all ready at the same time, i have given loads away to family, friends & neighbours. I am in danger of looking like a cucumber soon if eat any more so i was wondering if anyone had any recipes or ideas for cucumbers such as soups etc, that if possible i could freeze.

Why not use it for beautification. I've read articles about how nice cucumbers are for the skin. Sorry, I don't know how to cook.

Thanks for your opinion, it's something i didn't think of, will have a look at making some potions & lotions.

Hi Jen. I have been overwhelmed with tomatoes before, but never cucumbers.You could go for relish or chutney, which is what I did with my glut of tomatoes. How about pickling them, like gherkins? Years ago I went to Poland on a C of E youth trip. Apart from a very long set of steps to the church, and seeing tanks parked in sidings, gherkins and tea in glass pots are lasting memories of the trip, and the beauty of Cracow. T/C, L.
