Best Way to Store Cucumbers
Storage is one thing and storing it right is another thing entirely. Most people just place them on the counter and think they are safe, but the next couple of days will void that safety notion of theirs with sour cucumbers smiling at them.
Here’s How to Store Cucumbers from the Garden Properly and Keep Them Fresh All Week
Wrap The Cucumber Wrapping ensures the amount of moisture they receive from their enclosed storage (fridge) is reduced, when they receive too much moisture, it facilitates their decay process which is why storing them naked in the fridge is a terrible idea.
Place inside the Refrigerator After the wrapping, you can now officially refrigerate them. But before that, just to ensure that the temperature in the fridge is ambient enough, you can place the wrapped cucumbers in a transparent plastic bag before placing them in the fridge.
Store at Room Temperature Everywhere on the exterior is freezing already, but since there’s a roof over your head, you have at least a moderate temperature in your kitchen where gas provides some level of heat, and activity in the kitchen tries to balance the temperature. Convert Them to a Detox Drink With a detox drink, you can reap the dual benefits of these healthy vegetables. Just slice them up and fill a glass cup with them.
Lemon and Salt Solution Salt is a natural preservative for meat in the kitchen and the inclusion of lemon can make a powerful preservative combo for not just meats but vegetables.
Pickling It is also another method of storing sliced cucumbers to keep them fresh all week for consumption. Pickling tends to convert the cucumber into a delicacy of a sort or some kind of recipe. It can serve as a meal after you’ve pickled it and stored it.
