I found this monster cucumber next to the fence after the rest of the vine had shriveled.  Nearly two pounds and skin as hard as winter squash.  Anyone know a way to make this palatable?  Would a mature cuke  bake up like squash?

Yep....it's large, over-ripe cucumber time again in the northern hemisphere!.....
