Vierra Farms’ Armenian cucumbers
Got eructation? Cucumbers might help—if you pick up the right kind. So forgo those Safeway slicers, hit up the farmers’ market instead and try West Sacramento’s Vierra Farms’ Armenian cukes. They’re thin, light green and—get this—won’t give you indigestion, or so says Dave Vierra, who owns the farm along with his wife. I enjoyed my Armenian with rice vinegar and a ton of ground pepper. Verdict: tummy feels good and no burps since noon. But maybe I was just chewing slowly and swallowing less air?
