Cucumber Juice aka \”Ade\”

Farmshare Chronicles | eatatkates.com - When life gives you cucumbers, make cucumber-ade. Week 7 of the Farmshare Chronicles, where I work through a farmshare membership and try to stay sane.

Tip: Use a Pyrex 8-cup measuring cup (aff link). This is one of the best investments you can make in your kitchen. Great for mixing and pouring all sorts of things (batters, ice cream bases, infused liquors, juices, etc.). It will make pouring your drained cucumber juice into a more storage friendly container a super simple task.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Line a colander with cheese cloth and set aside.
  2. Peel the cucumbers and slice in half and then into two inch chunks.
  3. Puree in batches in a food processor or blender and pour each batch into the colander.
  4. Once all of the cucumbers are pureed, let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  5. After most of the juice has drained, pick up the corners of the cheesecloth, twist together, and squeeze the rest of the pulp to release the remainder of the juice.
  6. Throw away (or compost!) the pulp.
  7. Serve over ice with a squeeze of lime or add some soda or booze (or both!).

Notes

The final amount of juice you get will vary depending on the size and age of your cucumbers.
