Carrefour has assured me that the cucumbers we’ve bought originate from a greenhouse in Poland. I certainly hope so. I hope they don’t originate from a dumpster in Germany transported to Poland by some entrepreneurial cucumber sellers.
You can wash cucumbers with soap, right?
I mean, it’s too late. I’ve already washed them and made mizeria*. I used pomegranate dishwashing liquid. Better than E.coli, I suppose.
*Mizeria is a cucumber salad. It is basically cucumber slices in a sauce. My mother-in-law makes her mizeria with sour cream, sugar, and a splash of vinegar. Some people use yogurt or mayo instead of sour cream. Some people add onions or dill. Here’s a tip – Don’t salt the sauce/salad until right before serving (if at all). The salt draws the water out of the cucumbers and makes the sauce all watery.
