Cucumbers

Few foods are as cool as a cucumber. It's fresh, mild flavor is ideal in salads, it's the perfect flavor enhancer in drinks, and it's the crown jewel in pickling - receiving the honorary title of "pickle." On this episode, we'll visit Blue Gate farm in Chariton to see how one farmer grows cucumbers. Then, Chef Brandy Leuders (a.k.a the Grateful Chef) will stop by our studio kitchen to share a few unique recipes using this refreshingly tasty food. Also, we'll visit western Iowa to learn how local chefs get fresh ingredients in their kitchens.
