Best Ways To Store And Use Cucumber

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store cucumber.

Wash, dry and store cucumber in your crisper drawer in the fridge.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?

Not suitable for freezing.

Foods with high water content, like lettuce and cucumber, do not freeze well.

Fresher For Longer

Make sure your cucumbers are thoroughly dry before you store them: excess water on the surface can lead to spoiling.

Use It Up

You can pickle cucumber in just 14 minutes. Mix ribbons or slices with equal measures of caster sugar and white wine vinegar along with your favourite herbs or spices. These pickled delights are delicious with fish or in sandwiches.

Did You Know?

Cucumbers are especially sensitive to spoilage when exposed to ethylene-producing fruits and vegetables. Make sure to store them apart from apples, mangoes and stone fruits.
