Recipe Swap - Cooked Cucumbers

You might say "cooked cucumbers? yuck" but non non, mes amis, il est magnifique and will be a hit with just about anybody. An easy gourmet recipe. I sometimes do NOT measure anything because I just go by what feels right for the 2 of us. But this recipe should be enough for 4 people. Besides, use your imagination and experiment with your creativity, my little french chefs!! A little of this, a pinch of that and voilĂ , a masterpiece!

Butter about 1-2 Tblsp
Heavy whipping cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Peel 2 or 3 cucumbers. With a spoon, scoop out the seeds and cut into slices about 1/4 of an inch and then cut those in half. Then macerate the cucumbers in a bowl of water with about a tblsp of vinegar for about 1/2 hour. (I use red wine vinegar because that's the only kind of vinegar I buy and it works just fine.)
After the hour drain cukes and pat dry with paper towels. Proceed after the hour with the next part.

Chop up some scallions including some of the green part for color. Put some butter in a skillet and add the scallions. Fry slowly until golden and then add the cucumbers. Then add in some heavy whipping cream. Heat a few minutes slowly and serve immediately. Add salt and/or pepper to taste.
