Lithuanian cucumbers and honey are called agurkai su medum. This simple combination was actually invented by Jogailia, the Grand Duke of Lithuania. A recipe that is super simple and delicious. I had never thought of combining cucumbers with honey but it is honestly somewhat addicting. We really enjoyed it as a starter on a hot summer day as part of Lithuanian meal. The food is quite hardy generally speaking so this was a light lovely way to begin our meal with a dish that dates back to the Gothic period. Today this dish is common throughout eastern Europe. Enjoy!
