Growing Armenian Cucumber And How They Taste

Also known as ‘Yard Long Cucumber’.  Light-green, ribbed, cylindrical fruit 20-60cm.  Thin, soft skin, so no need for peeling.  Best results when grown on trellis. Armenian cucumber plants prefer to grow in full sun for most of the day. The fruit is most flavorful when it is 12 to 15 inches (30 to 38 cm) long. Grows quickly.  This cucumber is actually a melon, but is grown & eaten like a cucumber.
It is the very first time for me to grow and taste the Armenian Cucumber. I am very amazed with this plant and I will add it to my list of regularly grown annuals in our food forest.

Sauerpawpaw NOT Sauerkraut Part 2 of 2 – Fermenting Green Pawpaw Papaya …

Easy to prepare, delicious and super healthy. For the first part, check this link: https://youtu.be/BJHwSw1UUl8

Clean your hands and nails before you start to do it. I better say it here at the beginning 🙂

Sauerpawpaw Fermented Pawpaw Papaya The Recipe:

1. Green pawpaw or papaya, skinned, cleaned and shredded on the largest holes of your shredder
2. Salt, 1 flat tablespoon per 1 kg shredded pawpaw
3. Garlic, cleaned and chopped or shredded on the smallest holes of your shredder.

Mix shredded pawpaw with salt and garlic in a large plastic bowl while pressing and squeezing it with each move with your hands. Press to the bottom of the bowl and leave covered for about 30 minutes. Move and press it into a fermenting jar firmly so the entire juice stays on top of the jar. You should have enough juice to cover the shredded pawpaw in the jar. If not, boil one cup of water with one teaspoon of jar, cool down and add to the jar.

Important: No pawpaw pieces should float on top. All your fermenting veggies should always be kept under the juice so they have no air contact.The best is to cover the pawpaw with some clean cabbage or kale leaves. I have once kept it under the fluid with some celery sticks. it works as well!

Let it ferment until ready. It takes about 10-14 days. Keep in fridge from then. Enjoy!
