Cucumber – Pickling

Cucumbers are the essence of fresh vegetables. They are almost always eaten raw, without benefit of any kind of cooking, so you taste them undisguised and unadorned.

You will want to try both the pickling types that are ideal for gherkins, sweet pickles and dills, as well as the slicers that are long, thin-skinned and slender with crisp, sweet, thick flesh. Both the pickling and slicing types are available as burpless varieties that contain low levels of cucurbitacin, the substance that causes bitterness and increases vulnerability to “burping” after consuming the fruits.

Jalapeno

One of the most common chili peppers, jalapeños are green when picked and are usually used while green. Jalapeños will turn red as they ripen, both on the plant and after they’ve been picked.
