i compost all mine that i don't feed to my dog. if you don't have a dog or compost, perhaps you could put some in pitcher of water and stick it in the fridge? i love cucumber-infused water. peels might give a more subtle flavor than do cuc rounds but it might be worth a shot...

For something radical you could try using them as a sushi wrap.

There is a limiting factor to consider -- if they are waxed, they shouldn't be used for food! If not, consider a cucumber jelly with shredded peels (very appealing...). Or part of vegetable stock ingredients. And (to state the obvious) wash them -- in winter especially, unless organic, they are coming from distant and very commercial sources.

Mmm cucumber jelly sound like the next new thing. Have a recipe?

Thanks for your creative suggestions! I think I'll try several of them. (The cucumbers are organic, by the way.)

fhp, I don't have the recipe for cucumber jelly. It was made and sold by Elsie Masterton (author of 3 Blueberry Hill cookbooks) during the 1960's. It was pretty, light, and fine shreds of cucumber peel made it a visual pleasure. It has peeled, ground cucumbers and lemon zest... and that's all I know.
