I've had a little half cucumber knocking around in my crisper. Every time I moved the salad, I'd see it and think I wonder if that cucumber is still good? Wednesday morning, I discovered that it was decidedly not good as it was displaying white spots and squishing in the middle. I didn't even want to grab it for fear that it would rupture when touched, but I got a paper towel and tossed it.
Instead of a picture of the icky cucumber in my crisper, I give you a picture of a sea cucumber that is (probably) perfectly healthy--I mean, I hope it is, but how do you really tell?
