It’s not an easy task to make sure you choose the coolest cucumber in the store. Some grocery stores put wax on their vegetables to help them keep fresher for longer. If you are planning on using a waxed cucumber for your infusions, make sure you wash it thoroughly first! In fact, cucumbers can retain more pesticides than other vegetables, so it’s always a good idea to wash them properly before you use them.
What to look for in a good cucumber? Keep an eye out for a firm cucumber without any soft spots or blemishes. The ideal cucumber should be a healthy green color with no yellow spots. Yellow areas can indicate that the cucumber is past its best point. Avoid any cucumber that has wrinkles. This means that it has lost moisture and is probably not good to eat.
Lastly, give your cucumber a good sniff. Your nose knows! If a cucumber smells bad, it isn’t going to be pleasant to consume.
