Cucumber Water a la Jo
When life (or a CSA bag) hands you cucumbers, make cucumber water!
Last year sometime when I was visiting my friend Jo in NYC she had a pitcher of cucumber water in her fridge. It was so refreshing to drink; the cucumber added a faint delightfully grassy flavor to the water. I thought, why haven't I made this? After getting cucumbers from my CSA the past two weeks, and trying to figure out what to do with them, I remembered Jo's cucumber water and made up a batch. For an extra special treat, add the cucumbers to seltzer water. Delicious!
