In our quest for new nordic seasoning we have investigated dehydrating various fruits and vegetables. After much experimentation one really strong result has come out, cucumber powder. by dehydrating and then powdering these fruits a spice is attained which bears very little gustatory resemblance to the cucumber from whence it came. The flavour is sweet and sour with a spiced note akin to middle eastern spices. Try it! Cucumbers are cheap and this is an easy to make and new spice with fantastic potential.
