I love that the Internet makes the world a little smaller. I feel as though I have friends all over the world, thrilling conversations from the quiet of my home can be had, and if you want to learn a little about a new topic, all the information you could ever need is at the tips of your fingers.
Over the weekend I was trawling Instagram, using #urbanfarming and came across a wonderful woman, who has an amazing farm in her backyard in the middle of Melbourne. I commented on all of her photos, and she was kind enough to exchange emails with me. Since then, we’ve been sending 1000 word emails back and forth (this may be why I’m not blogging so much), and is an absolute wealth of information, who is more than happy to answer all of my questions.
She directed me to Suburban Tomato. I was engrossed in this blog for the whole of Sunday, devouring the ‘when to plant’, and the ‘how to preserve’, that Liz shares.
So the only solution when I found the 650gm bag of cucumbers, right on the edge of going bad, was to do these Bread and Butter Cucumbers. Why they are named that I’m not too sure, but the recipe was wonderfully simple, and honestly satisfying to create. Now the cucumbers sit and wait for at least two weeks to mature, before we taste them.
Do you preserve? What’s your favourite way to use up cucumbers?
