What to do with Leftover Cucumbers?

Cucumbers’ indigestibility appears to be a given. Cucurbitacin, a chemical found in cucumbers, appears toxic to some people. Apart from not eating cucumbers in the first place, which seems harsh, there appears to be considerable uncertainty regarding how to avoid this side effect. Some people approve of the skin being removed. I believe the cucumber’s skin is the best part, as it contains most of the flavor.

Unlike tomatoes, which have a lot of flavor in the seeds, I always deseed my cucumbers. It’s the fluid seeds, in my less-than-scientific perspective, that cause you to burp.
