So I had read about FeistyFoodie’s love of braised cucumbers and fondly remembered this from the Julie & Julia movie, so when I finally saw cucumbers go on sale on Fresh Direct, I jumped at the chance to try it. The cucumber I got was one of those “this is way too big to not make a crude joke about” types and I think I may have let it sit for too long… because my braised cucumbers were just an epic fail. (sad face)
They tasted like they were just soggy, old cucumbers. GROSS! Though I am blaming my veggie selection rather than just the recipe… for now. I also failed to remove the seeds as I didn’t think this would have too much of an impact on the final result, but perhaps I was wrong.
I will try again!
