foxytina_69 - thanks for that url, I've bookmarked it for further investigation! I wonder if Lebanese cucumbers (my favourites) have a different nutritional value than the apple cues, or continental cucumbers? Probably not much different, just that the Lebanese ones are tastier, to me. :D

That's a good site.

Nutritiondata.com is good for finding out fruit/veggie information, too. :)

I couldn't get that first Dole page to work. Anyway, cukes have B1, B2, and C. Raw, they have the powerful protein-digesting enzyme erepsin. That's according to The People's Almanac.

I like to "can" them in a solution of half apple cider vinaigare and half water with a bit of sugar dissolved in. Slice up the cukes and let them sit in this solution for about an hour. I can eat loads of cucumbers when they're done this way.

MMMMM... cucumbers...
