Cucumber How to peel and seed a cucumber:
With a vegetable peeler, peel the cucumber vertically using long strokes. Slice off each end, and slice the cucumber lengthwise into two long pieces. With a small spoon, scoop out the seeds. Then slice the cucumber into bite sized pieces so they will be easily pureed in the blender.
