Expert Tips

For food safety reasons, frozen vegetables must be cooked.

Although English cucumbers may be a bit more expensive, they are virtually seedless and will save you from removing the seeds, which can tend to be bitter in regular cucumbers. If stored whole and unwashed in a plastic bag, cucumbers will keep up to 10 days in the refrigerator.
