Armenian cukes for pickles???

Post  dixie on 7/5/2011, 10:44 pm

I have a few Armenian (yard long) cucumbers. Can you make pickles with them like you do regular cukes? This is my first year growing them.

Sounds like it's time for some cold cucumber soup. Just read an article where a lady had substituted them in her zucchini bread recipe and it turned out wonderful. Some Afghani friends have a resturant and make a drink called
Dogh

* Yogurt
* Cold water
* Cucumber
* Salt
* Dried mint

Instructions

Put 16 ounces of plain yogurt (homemade or store bought) into a large pitcher, and add 4 cups of cold water. Take 1/2 of a cucumber, peel it and cut it into rounds. Take as much or as little of it as you like and finely chop it into small pieces and add it to the mixture. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the pitcher. Take a pinch of dried mint and rub it between your hands to release some of the essence and sprinkle it over the top of the liquid. Mix well and keep very cold. You can add ice cubes but it will dilute the mix, so I recommend just putting it in the refrigerator.
I don't do a full recipe , it's not a bad drink with a Mideastern meal.

Thanks, I'll see how pickles turn out. The flavor is very good when eaten fresh.
