Help i've got a glut of cucumbers

derbyshire, United Kingdom

Has anyone got any ideas what I can do with cucumbers.I have 3 plants but can't use them fast enough and friends are getting fed up of them. I was wondering if anyone had any good recipes. here's hoping.



I had a prowl on dear old Google and was looking for the good soup I used to it is a great cuc.glut standby....cold or hot.
There are a few suggestions on this site...

1.Put a sign in a front window "fresh organic cucumbers!" Guaranteed to draw a crowd.
2.Give to your local church to sell after Sunday service for funds or any other local charity group come to that.
3.Take a few round to an old people's home in your area. Surely someone there would appreciate some good fresh homegrown produce?

If yoo're still getting cucumbers, pick them small and pickle them, that's what I do. Great to eat in a couple of months.

Hmmph, can't put my hands on my Sarson's pickling book, but there are lots of pickling recipes to be found online, of course. Baby cukes are gherkins, of course. :-)
