Tips & Tricks
Long English Cucumbers 1

Selection

Long English cucumbers are best when firm and without blemishes or soft spots, which may indicate they are past their prime.
Their color should be dark green without any yellow spots, which develop as cucumbers become over-ripe.

Preparation

Cut at the stem end and expose only the amount you need. Cut off the chunk you would like to use and rewrap the exposed end and unused portion with your excess wrap. The unused portion should stay wrapped to help the cucumber keep longer.

Storage

Make sure your cucumbers are thoroughly dry before you store them–excess water on the surface encourages spoiling. Wrap them in a clean dish towel or paper towel—this will help keep out any condensation.
