Last Crunch of the Season

I picked up probably my last lemon cucumbers for the season. Gosh, where did the season go? I love these little buggers, filled with water and crunchiness. I discovered them about two years ago at the farmers' market and thought they were lemony flavored. I found out they just got their names because they had the shape and color of a lemon, but really were just a cucumber. But in many ways they're more than just a cucumber. They're super cucumbers! Nothing compares in crunch. I basically cut these into cubes and toss with a miso dressing and just snack away. Sigh. This is definitely something you should remember if you see them next summer at the farmers' market. You won't regret picking them up!
