Cucumbers, known as "Gurken" in German, are a popular and versatile vegetable often used in salads, sandwiches, and pickling. When purchasing or describing a crate containing 14-16 pieces of cucumbers, here are the key details to consider:

 

Appearance

  • Shape and Size: Cucumbers are typically cylindrical, elongated, and can vary in length. The ones in a crate of 14-16 pieces are usually about 6 to 10 inches long.
  • Color: The skin of cucumbers is smooth and dark green, sometimes with lighter green stripes or spots. The flesh inside is pale green to white.
  • Texture: The skin is usually firm and slightly bumpy, while the inside is crisp and watery.

 

Culinary Uses

  • Uses: Commonly eaten raw in salads, sandwiches, and as part of vegetable platters. Cucumbers are also used in pickling to make pickles. They can be sliced, diced, or used whole, depending on the recipe. Additionally, cucumbers can be blended into smoothies, juices, or cold soups like gazpacho.

 

Nutritional Value

  • Low in Calories: Cucumbers are very low in calories, making them an excellent snack for those looking to manage their weight.
  • Hydration: Due to their high water content (about 95%), cucumbers are great for hydration.
  • Nutrients: They are a good source of vitamins K and C, potassium, and contain small amounts of fiber. They also have antioxidants, including beta-carotene.

 

Storage

  • Fresh: Cucumbers should be stored in the refrigerator, where they can stay fresh for about one to two weeks. It's best to keep them in the crisper drawer.
  • Handling: To maintain their crispness, cucumbers should be kept dry and wrapped in a paper towel or placed in a plastic bag.
