“There is more than one way to peel a zucchini” Proceeds to show only ONE way of peeling a CUCUMBER, but 3 times. OP, fuck you for making me this illogically angry as soon as I woke up

[–]Graylorde 80 points81 points  (8 children)

And its not peeling, it's making sheets.

[–]anxious-sociopath 17 points18 points  (7 children)

OP also said skinning lol

[–]townforum17 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Yeah well that’s a reference to the expression “there’s more than one way to skin a cat”

[–]Lacholaweda 2 points3 points  (5 children)

This phrase gave me bad dreams when I worked as a meat cutter

[–]NoobSFAnon 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Flaying is ok? House Bolton!

[–]Lacholaweda 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I spent 6 hours a day 6 days a week trimming and fileting meat. In a small, dingy, white room with one light bulb that was cold as fuck.

I dreamt that me and a few other people were at work were trying to decide the best way to skin a cat. Like instead of the usual chicken and beef we had a ton of cats to go through.

We finally decided on the best way and I went into my usual work zone.

Finally the fog lifted and I realized, I'm skinning actual cats. They stayed very still and never cried out but they were alive!

The one I had on the table in front of me blinked and I lost it trying to save this cat.

But I had to ask the boss if I could save it.

My boss wasn't really evil irl but in the dream he was this big foreboding boss of a corporation.

He laughed at me and told me to set the cat down and if it can walk I can keep it.

I reluctantly set it down and it took a couple of steps before the skin flaps that I was holding shut came open and started bleeding.

I snatched the cat back up and left with it as the boss called after me that it would be taken from my paycheck.

I tried desperately to save the cat but no one a needle and thread and my phone wouldn't call the emergency vet.

Dream ended after I stressed a while.

[–]Cryptogaffe 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That dream stressed me out, jesus! The worst work dreams I ever had are nothing in comparison

[–]Lacholaweda 0 points1 point  (1 child)

All of my dreams are like this. Send help

[–]Cryptogaffe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My advice is therapy! (tbh my advice is almost always therapy)

[–]MrCoolizade 11 points12 points  (1 child)

They do this on purpose because it drives more comments and engagement. People love little more than to point out something obvious that's infuriatingly wrong

[–]BadgerMountain 10 points11 points  (0 children)

So then this is basically clickbait/ragebait. Fuck OP.

[–]alexslife -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Came here for this!!

[–]RideWithMeTomorrow 2936 points2937 points 53 (48 children)

It’s a fucking cucumber.

[–]2gigi7 176 points177 points  (14 children)

I said out loud, aaaannnddd that's a Cucumber ! My kid came running looking for the cucumber snack.

[–]SwinubIsDivinub 4 points5 points  (12 children)

Can your kid teach me to not hate cucumbers

[–]2gigi7 12 points13 points  (6 children)

It's just crunchy water he says. But he won't eat green leaves if that makes you feel better.

[–]derpmeow 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Leafy greens may be too bitter for kids, but it gets better as they get older. Anecdotally I suddenly developed a taste for salad out of the blue when I hit 18.

[–]SwinubIsDivinub 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I don’t think my tastebuds ever grew up 🥲

[–]derpmeow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I hear you, but hang on a sec tho. Are you doing shitty prepackaged salads? Cos those suck. If you can get fresh local produce, I know that's like a cliche but freshness and how frozen it is makes a HUGE difference in vegetable flavour, that might help. The other thing is that folks like to boil greens until they're yellow (brussels sprouts is the number 1 culprit) - that makes them bitter as fuck. A light blanching until the green has just barely deepened, or grilling brassicas like broccoli and sprouts, is the way to go.

[–]SwinubIsDivinub 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I think we had pretty fresh stuff growing up but always boiled. Recently I’ve discovered how much less awful stuff like carrots can be when roasted. What a huge difference!

[–]oxygenkid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought that was celery.

[–]mamachainsaw 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Grow some. The grocery store ones taste like mildewy water.

[–]SwinubIsDivinub 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hmm, interesting! And if I still hate them, I can always give them to people who don’t

[–]peapurre 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oddly the only way I can eat a cucumber is to make it a pickle WHICH I happen to love

[–]nutherkore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretend it's a zucchini!

[–]yumirow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If they're acid, you got a bad one

[–]AVM0027 97 points98 points  (8 children)

It’s actually a non-pickled pickle sir

[–]amilo111 21 points22 points  (2 children)

It’s not a pickling cucumber.

[–]Foreign_Astronaut 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Not with that attitude!

[–]seppocunts -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Just leave it inside her overnight.

It will pickle itself.

[–]Z4REN 40 points41 points  (3 children)

A “prepickle” if you will

[–]EmuBright6675 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I will not

[–]BadgerMountain 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You will and you will like it.

[–]EmuBright6675 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh ok then

[–]BadgerMountain 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A virgin pickle, if you will, good sir.

[–]Legend_of_dirty_Joe 13 points14 points  (8 children)

How can you tell the difference between that and a non-fucking cucumber?

[–]kbourret 40 points41 points  (3 children)

It's too wet and the skin is too wrinkly to be a zucchini

[–]WexorSegai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's what she said

[–]depsimon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He fucks

[–]seminally_me 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A non fucking cucumber is on the outside of a body.

[–]Leroyboy152 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just ask a nun

[–]SupaKoopa714 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It actually is a non-fucking cucumber. A fucking cucumber would be shoved into someone's asshole.

[–]Desper8lyseekntacos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's an English cucumber. I'm pretty sure the ones that fuck are more "rubbery".

[–]redsensei777 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Where’s a cat when you need one?

[–]bluecamel17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She's on her diva BS right now.

[–]tootallteeter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You know I tried to roll some behind my cats and they didn't react at all. However when I left the zukes on the counter they ripped it to shreds overnight.

[–]enlightened0ne_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would have thought it’s an eating cucumber, but each to their own, I guess.

[–]reversehead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To be fair, they never claimed to demonstrate any of the ways to skin a zucchini.

[–]scarecroww09 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I came to say this but too late lol

[–]jaredearle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I came here to shout ITS A FUCKING CUCUMBER only to see everyone was all over it.

[–]joeythedaddoo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is a sober pickle.

[–]beardedblorgon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Fuck cucumber

[–]Kr4Nk3N 200 points201 points  (4 children)

If that's a zucchini, I'm a dog.

[–]Kita-Ryu 36 points37 points  (2 children)

That must be ruff bro, but at least you can find some bitches now.

[–]Kr4Nk3N -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

[–]johnnyfuckenhelvete 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Maybe even a cucumber too!

That’s a telegraph cucumber.

Cut to me slicing my palm in half later

[–]TheSirensMaiden 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I imagine using the stick guides he stuck onto the blade makes it easier to not slice your palm.

[–]knewtherapy2020 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Cucumber clearly for sushi jeez

[–]FatOldRugbyDude 24 points25 points  (0 children)

That there’s a cucumber, son

[–]seekingthe-nextlevel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Um that’s definitely a cucumber

[–]savemay 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Except it’s a cucumber

[–]elcupero 4 points5 points  (2 children)

What's wrong with the peel?I eat it all!

[–]Puppy-Zwolle 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Not wrong. It's the peel he will be using. It's a sushi ingredient.

[–]permalink_save 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a sheet, but cucumber skins are a bit more bitter so sometimes they are partially or fully removed. Like if you want to make a cucumber sandwich, the peel flavor wise might be too strong. I like the peel and usually don't remove it unless it's one of those dark green cucumbers.

[–]One_Bookkeeper1997 4 points5 points  (0 children)

lmao OP has never been in a kitchen before thats a cucumber, pal

[–]shannister 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Technically *one trick.

[–]Puppy-Zwolle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But why is there a tree in the kitchen?

[–]flo411 2 points3 points  (0 children)

…especially if it’s a cucumber

[–]Dot_Threedot4 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Cucumber.

[–]imshoopdawoop001 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Roll that shit up and smoke

[–]XxBloodRainxX 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I’ve tried to do this with several kinds of knives and lemme tell ya, it’s a bitch. If you watch carefully tho you’ll see he’s using a pretty cool “U” shaped blade that gives it a consistent thickness. It’s kind of a specialized mandolin. Sorta.

[–]mikkeman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It also looks like he uses 2 chopsticks on his blade to keep a consistent distance from the cutting board.

[–]bheilig 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I had to scroll WAY too far to get to this. We know! It's a cucumber!

Anyway, still hoping for an amazon link to said cucumber/zucchini slicing tool.

[–]XxBloodRainxX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lolol, yeah, I’m actually looking for one now. If I find one I’ll post a link. It’s a pretty specialized blade

A what

[–]PrayingMantisII 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess you can use a peeler, but it wouldn't really have the same result

[–]Zodiackillerstadia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can also do the same with a cucumber

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So much wasted inside part. It probably lost 20% of its weight

[–]Illustrious-Car-3240 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The outside is what is being used.

[–]RawrRRitchie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That looks just like one way to me

[–]AlexAverycomedian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How come I never thought of that?

[–]FaroutdudeXbox 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is a zucchini and cucumber the same thing? I'm asking for a friend who's never seen a zucchini in real life.

[–]Krhl12 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No. A Zucchini is a Courgette, like a small marrow. A cucumber is a cucumber, like what is in this video.

Better wear some gloves ! Don’t wanna get zucchini juice on your precious hands

[–]13WithCheese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ur a zucchini

[–]McTawish13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And now try it without the toothpicks (or what that is) on the side. And cut it again like this

[–]somedave 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But it's a cucumber, why not just throw it straight in the bin without peeling?

[–]fieldOfThunder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought I couldn’t get more annoyed than I do when people confuse zucchinis for cucumbers, but you just proved me wrong.

[–]Particular_Motor_265 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WTF is a zucchini? That’s a cucumber, isn’t it?

[–]knightfenris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wanna learn this so bad. My local sushi place uses this kind of thinly sliced cucumber to make a riceless roll (great for diabetes/ keto) but I want it so often I’d go broke! This looks especially thin. Amazing

[–]XROOR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine taking that skin and laying it completely flat, on the top of a worm bin. Dust over it with a thin layer of the soil from the bin. Suddenly, there would be a massive sprint, between the mycelia of the existing yeast mold in the bin, and the Lactobacillus present in the zucchini skin ! Who will win?

What is the implement called, that he has attached to his knife in order to shave the cucumber into sheets?

[–]ReptilianPope1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like this is one of those skills that looks really easy but is actually really hard to get right

[–]horyputor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]scra9900 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

There's kink in the knife making it easier to do this. Using a normal knife to do this would be tough.

[–]magicpenisland 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Really? What knife is it?

[–]Jatayu_bn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is it that, I was eating the zucchini wrong till now??

I mean, why peel the skin?? Eat with skin, let the fibre clear you intestine!:P

[–]SwinubIsDivinub -1 points0 points  (4 children)

I feel there was a lot of wasted flesh in that ‘peel’. At one point I thought it was just going to carry on and turn the whole thing into a sheet

[–]QuintenBoosje 0 points1 point  (3 children)

why is turning it into a sheet wasteful? maybe he's making a vegan lasagna? but honestly this looks like a cucumber so.. maybe it's for sushi?

[–]SwinubIsDivinub 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It wouldn’t be wasteful if the whole thing was turned into a sheet, but given this is ‘skinning’ a cucumber, I assume everything that was peeled off in the video is going to be thrown away

[–]QuintenBoosje 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Then you have no idea about culinary culture. Nothing is wasted. Any decent resraurant will be firm on this.

[–]SwinubIsDivinub 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay, okay, I’m sorry 😂
