What is the best way to preserve cucumbers besides making pickles?
I am getting loads of cucumbers from my garden, and many are of a larger variety, which probably would not make great pickles. I'm looking for a different way of storing them for use later.
Like you I also had no idea about what are the other methods.. So I did a short research and found that there are atleast 7 other ways you can preserve cucumbers.. 7!!! I know right. so the methods are.

1. Cucumber jelly. Its one of the weird ones. A green jelly. it'll look more like slimes.. Nonetheless you can preserve using this way.

2.Cucumber bread. They say its like zucchini bread except it will taste cucumberish and spicy.

3.Cucumber chips. As in like dried potato chips but less flavors, calories and startch.

4 Cucumber juice. I am sure this will taste funny.. A flavorless drink, more like water with watery taste.

5.Cucumber relish. they say this tastes great on hotdogs but I'm not sure if I will put this one ever on my dogs..

6.Cucumber salsa. Now this one is easy to made and I have had this before.. lasts as long as pickles and very spicy in taste..

7. Cucumber sorbet?. I knew there were sorbets that were sweet and weird but never knew cucumber to be in a sorbet.. Must taste nice. though.. Sweet cucumbers are looking very delicious in my mind.

There are some other ways that you can use but I think thus 7 are sufficient for one lifetime.
Dehydrating cucumbers is a new one to me. But you can pretty much dehydrate any fruit or vegetable so I thought I’d give it a try.

Slice the cucumbers in 1/4″ or thinner slices, put in dehydrator and let dry for 6-8 hours. They were okay. We probably won’t eat them plain but I can use them in my infused water – I’ll just have to let it sit longer.
