  5. Does it matter? You can buy half cucumbers in supermarkets so they would be starting in the middle but continuing from your question, do you but the stem end or the flower end?

    If you start the wrong end it will be bitter.

    It's a very important question, one which is causing arguments in our household :eek:

    Off topic..... but

    Stag do at the weekend in Brighton, the stag had a list of challenges to do,

    One was to go into the supermarket and purchase a large cucumber, a bottle of lube, pack of tissues and a good housekeeping magazine.

    Poor girl at the checkout didn't know what to say, where to look or what to do.

    He took it all in his stride, much to our amusement.

    I usually start by chucking cucumber straight in the bin.

    If they start to go squishy, they go from the flower end, so it makes sense to eat the flower end first, after deflowering it, of course...

    And there was me thinking the good folk on TFF would come up with a definitive answer to this age old question :(you lot can go back to arguing about which bull is best when you know dam well its the middle one :rolleyes: and leave the important questions in life to those with the drive and ambition to find the correct conclusion :mad:
    honestly I despair of the quality of argument on TFF these days :banghead::facepalm: and there was me thinking this was the place to solve these problems FFS

    anyway I need to know, so perhaps a blind test,
    Check list for this experiment
    1) cucumber
    2) decimetre
    3) blindfold
    4) some slippery salad dressing
    5) stopwatch
    6] @farmerclare

    Later ;)

    That sounds even more risque than @crazy_bull lube and good housekeeping.

    Give up NOW!
    Even though you're side of the argument may well be correct, and even if the majority of the good folk of TFF agree with you, you will never win.
    You must learn and remember the following words so they fall from your lips naturally.

    "Yes dear"
