Cukes Aren’t Just for Eating

When you bite into that sweet, cooling cucumber in your salad, you probably aren’t thinking about all its’ nutritional values or other ways to use it. It’s just like lettuce – a staple salad ingredient.

But it is one of the most versatile vegetables.

And one almost everyone likes!

It’s packed full of vitamins and is an anti-oxidant (think anti-aging!)

Helps our:

  • Skin
  • Bones

You can even make DIY face care products with cukes and eliminate toxins and chemicals in commercially prepared products.

I always thought making pickles would be hard. But this recipe is quick and easy.

And it makes a great Hostess Gift!

It was given to me years ago (unfortunately I do not remember who gave it to me!) and it has become a staple in my fridge ever since.

These are a delicious snack with cheese and crackers, on sandwiches, as a relish, or just out of the jar!

In addition to the vitamins and anti-oxidants in cucumbers, adding turmeric gives this an extra boost.

As always, organic ingredients are recommended.
