Pickled cucumbers, or simply “pickles,” are the product of regular cucumbers that have been freshly cut, placed in a pickling solution, and aged. Stop by our farm to pick up some fresh cucumbers, pickled cucumbers – or both! The low-calorie cucumber is a great way to snack healthy because it’s up to 95 percent water. And they are very nearly a multivitamin in themselves, containing Vitamins B1, B2, B3, Zinc, and many more. You can eat them by themselves, make sandwiches out of them or just toss them into a salad.
