This is Becca.
Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing a Recipe for Cucumber Water.
All though you may think a cucumber recipe is to just to squeeze the juice out of the Cucumber, (yes, once the recipe does call for it) there is a little more to it.
How should your garden fresh cucumber look & feel?
- 1 gallon of water
- 6 fresh spearmint sprigs
- 2 teaspoon lime zest, for decoration
- 1 lime, sliced and unpeeled
- Ice cubes
In a pitcher, mix the fresh seltzer , water, (We at Organic Gurlz Gardens often use distilled water) cucumber, all 6 spearmint sprigs, and lime.
Allow mixture and liquid to rest in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
If you prepare the water at the last minute, cut the first cucumber in three or four pieces. Then, squeeze the cucumber pieces to release all the juice into.
We at Organic Gurlz Gardens suggest putting it in a margarita glass with the lime zest decor and cucumber slice garnish!
Cucumbers contain Silica, a trace mineral necessary to keep connective tissue healthy.
