Say Hello To The King – Cucumber

Okay people! This time I am introducing you to something that is undoubtedly the undisputed champion of goods…The oil which used no matter in any form…and anywhere on the human body…Will only do GOOD! And nothing else…

Mild in nature…Cooling in nurture…This amazing vegetable and favourite of all is none other than cucumber…

Remember the days in childhood…when after long hours of outdoor playing…you were served with chilled tang and snacks…which primarily included nicely cute pieces of watery and cool cucumber with some salt for taste?

Well…I can’t be sure about you…But I was surely served with it…Then be it any party or get-together…Cucumber ruled the salad corner…Also when it used to be a weekend or call it mom’s beauty-care-day…And you have seen her using ample of cucumber in her face-packs…which were of the most ugly of colours like olive green…blue and even an outrageous orange! Phew! And they were all teamed with two round slices of cucumber on eyes…And made mom look like a multicoloured ghost or a marinated chicken!

Hmm…Yeah…I think I have reminded you of cucumber to a great extent…

I’ll give you a complete account of this amazing thing….Okay…to start…you know…The cucumber is believed to be native to India…and evidence indicates that it has been cultivated in Western Asia for 3,000 years…The cucumber is also listed among the foods of ancient Ur and the legend of Gilgamesh describes people eating cucumbers…Some sources also state that it was produced in ancient Thrace…and it is certainly part of modern cuisine in Bulgaria and Turkey…parts of which make up that ancient state…From India…it spread to Greece and Italy…where the Romans were especially fond of the crop…and later into China…

I am so sure…more than half of you mustn’t be aware of this that cucumber…the basic one we see…eat or know is not the only type present on earth!

Yes ladies and gentlemen….There are MANY cucumber types…I’ll name a few…

  • Picklers
  • Slicers
  • Gherkins
  • White
  • Bush cukes

Surprised? Better be…Frankly…Even I hadn’t heard of all of them…Well…Now you know…

Hmm…And as easy as it might seem…The art of pickling and preserving cucumbers is not all that of a child’s play…And in fact is centuries old…

The best part is that deliciously watery vegetable…You can pickle or preserve any small cucumber…or eat picklers fresh right off the vine…Isn’t that amazing?

Okay so…take my word and start experimenting with different varieties…regardless of how you intend to use them…Okay just to make you aware…in general…picklers are-

  • Smallish
  • Often warty
  • Green

And they are used for small sweet pickles or large dills…but the can also be eaten fresh…Okay my mouth is seriously watering while writing this! Phew! Concentrate! Yeah! Slicers form 5- to 8-inch cylindrical cucumbers…used for slicing and serving fresh…Cucumbers grow best with long…hot…humid days with maximum sunshine and warm nights…Plants are extremely susceptible to frost….

Hmm…Now some handy information…I mean handy nutritional information…Cucumbers are mostly (96 percent) water….Their dietary fibre is unique in that it can hold up to 30 times its weight in water compared to the fibre in wheat bran…which holds only four to six times its weight in water…But cucumbers have so much water that there is little room for anything else…Two ounces of fresh cucumber slices has less than 1 g dietary fibre—and no significant amounts of vitamins or minerals…So won’t you too call it the king?
