A great way to stay hydrated and use up those cucumber peels and herb stems! This recipe calls for mint stems, but plenty of others would be great too.
- Mint stems (and any other leftovers from a sprig).
- Cucumber peels.
- Ice. (Optional)
- Once you’ve finished peeling a cucumber for another recipe, drop the peels into a pitcher of water.
- Add mint stems and any other bits leftover from a sprig.
- You can enjoy it right away. But Stern advises that it tastes best if the flavors marry for several hours or overnight.
