(adapted from Julia Child's Cookbook, with organic/home grown/non-gmo ingredients)
1 huge cucumber (or 2 regular sized), organic
1 tablespoon butter, organic, non-gmo
1 dash salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice, organic (or fresh squeezed organic)
1 pinch dried mint (update: I now use homegrown organic spearmint)
Peel cucumber. Cut into quarters and remove seeds. Cut into 1 inch pieces.
Melt butter in a pan and add cucumber. Cover and cook about 5 minutes on medium heat.
Stir in salt, lemon, and mint. Cover and cook another 2 minutes.
