This Monday, rather than featuring a recipe, we'd like to talk about trying new things. Amy never was a big fan of vegetables, but over the years has gradually come to love them. Well, many of them. And a big part of that came simply out of trying them, either for the first time, or with fresh eyes (or tastebuds, as it were).
At yesterday's farmers' market, we found this heirloom cucumber from Maine that we had never seen before. It is the size of a pickling cucumber and has whitish-yellow skin with creamy white and light green tones on the inside. The skin is slightly bitter, the texture crisp, and the flesh has a delicately sweet flavor. We ate ours out of hand, but bet these would be great pickling cukes.
Here's to trying new things!
Well, it looks pretty yummy :)
I love cucumbers, but I have never seen one like this before! Have fun pickling!
I love the farmer's market and this looks so healthy and delicious :)
Never seen it before. Interesting.
I've never seen an heirloom cucumber... it looks like squash of sorts. :)
YUM! I just had a yellow cucumber here in NC. The peel was almost sweet!
Very interesting and we love trying new foods.

Oh how awesome! Never heard of this type before, but then again, I just discovered white cucumbers this year too!
The farmers markets are such a good place to discover new things.
That's twice in one day we've run across heirloom cucumbers.. have to try this delicacy!
