What to do with an overgrown cucumber

Scott_R | Aug 14, 2015 11:30 AM

Found a cucumber in my patch that had escaped my notice and is now about 18" long. What to do with it?

I'm thinking something along the pickling/preserving route. Are there any recipes particularly suited to something so overgrown, since we typically use very small cucs to make pickles? Maybe something cut up, or like a relish?

Something low in sugar, if possible--I avoid sugar in general, and my tastes aren't towards the sweet, anyway (e.g., my preferred cucumber pickle is the full sour).
