Cucumbers are a healthy snack, but they often have a bitter taste. You can get rid of this bitterness by thinly slicing off both ends and rubbing one piece against the cucumber.
The above video by etriliun demonstrates just how to do it. Rubbing that sliced end against the cucumber will release a white, foamy substance, which contains an organic compound called cucurbitacin. This is the cause of the bitterness. Keep rubbing till it stops producing foam.
WonderHowTo explains that cucurbitacin mostly occurs in the skin of the cucumber, regardless of the temperature, so you can continue to store it at room temperature. But the skin is also the healthiest part. The internet is divided on whether this is scientific or not, but a large number of people agree that it works, so there’s no harm trying it out.
