Refreshing Cucumber Water Recipe




Sonya The Kitten Tutubuddy's garden has been doing so well this year! (See Sonya's Gardening Tips.) Betty The Bunny loves the Cucumbers! (89 cents at Michaels at the end of the summer for a bunch of seeds and starter soil. They also had watermelon.)



Betty the Bunny decided to make some refreshing cucumber water for everyone. (My husband feel in love with cucumber water at Fusion Sushi Bar, so he's soooooooo thrilled about having fresh, delicious cucumber water every day! Plus it's super healthy!)

Ingredients You Will Need:

1 Gallon of Water
1/4 Large Cucumber in Thin Slices

Directions:

You can use an old milk gallon jug to do this- recycles and a great free water pitcher. Put in a large pot on the stove on high until it boils. Once boiling, remove water from heat. Let cool for about 10 minutes. You want the water to be warm, but not hot enough to cook the cucumber, as this will add a slight, bitter taste. While water is cooling slice the 1/4 large cucumber into really thin slices- the thinner the better. Once water is cool enough add the cucumber to water.

Let sit until water is almost room temperature. Pour water and cucumbers back into gallon jug. The water will not completely fill the jug, so add water until it does. Let refrigerate over night. Now enjoy your amazingly fresh water! (Note- this is also fantastic for mint water- just add 1 long stem of mint with the leaves still on- so refreshing and rejuvenating!)
