Does the peeling method of cucumbers prevent bitter taste?
I find conflicting opinions whether peeling cukes a certain way prevents bitter taste. One recommendation is to start peeling the cuke at the blossom end, and wash the knive after each stroke. Other views say it does not matter. I would like to seed some cukes for late season harvest, but that's when I had bitter cukes in the past. If the way of peeling makes a difference, I'd give it a try.
