Ideas for Armenian Cucumbers?

modthyrth | Sep 14, 2012 08:46 AM

We have a little herb garden, but I like to let my girls pick a few veggies to grow, too. We picked Armenian cucumbers a while back, thinking simply, "Cucumbers, cool, we like those!"

Little did we know that these are no normal cucumbers. Or cute dainty cucumbers like Persian cucumbers. I looked out my kitchen window one day to find cucumbers of Brobdinagian proportions.

The skin is incredibly delicate, no need for peeling. The flavor is a cross between a cucumber and the part of a watermelon when you get close to the white/green edge.

I cut one up--ONE--and made about 20 cups of fridge pickles. There are about 20 more of these suckers lurking on the vines, getting bigger by the day. Any ideas for what I can do with these things? Besides dropping them on neighbors' porches and making zucchini porch offerings feel puny and inadequate?
