Here is a totally random but very cool cucumber trick that will get rid of the bitter taste that many freshly cut cucumbers have.
Before slicing it, cut off the end and rub this cut piece in a circular motion onto the end of the cucumber till it releases a white foamy substance. Repeat this on the other end too and then peel it or prepare it how you normally would.
Balazs and I tried it last night with a few cucumbers for a salad and it really works. Do you know any fun tricks that you'd like to share? xo
