cucumber

 I have been clearing the greenhouse and found a marketmore cue which had grown outof sight I suspect this (,not fully green cue) may be slightly bitter if eaten raw is there any use for this ie cook or extract seed or simply discard it?

    Cook it - peel the skin, chop up remove middle slime seeds - cut in half then half again long ways into small long bits then into pieces sideways cook in a pain with melted butter until golden brown - taste really nice

    Make into soup. Part peel skin, slice length-wise. Remove seeds (with tea spoon).and chop. Put in saucepan with 2 chopped spring onions and fry gently for 2/3 mins. Add approx 100grms chopped potato and three quarters pint of veggie or chicken. stock. Bring to boil and simmer until tender. Salt and Black Pepper to taste.  Zizz up if you prefer smooth. Sounds complicated but is really easy.
