Cucumber Water

Once upon a time I had a very productive Sunday. I cleaned the kitchen and went to the grocery store. And when I got back from the store I washed and dried my produce before putting it in the fridge, I chopped up celery and carrots for the week’s lunches, and made cucumber water.

Thanks to Not From Concentrate and their pineapple water for inspiring me to make this water a post on Sew You Think You Can Cook.

Stuart first tried cucumber water on a business trip at a hotel – he became hooked. It’s now a refreshing beverage staple in my fridge.

Cucumber Water

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cucumber
  • pitcher of drinking water

Steps:

  1. Wash and peel cucumber. This is optional, but it’s pretty to peel the cucumber in stripes! Slice cucumber and put into a pitcher of drinking water.
  2. Allow cucumber to “steep” in the fridge an hour before removing the cucumber slices. (Stuart goes through water really quickly so I actually leave the cucumber in the water and get two pitchers out of each half of cucumber.)
