You're right, they are still only 80-85 percent water, but the interesting thing is that cucumbers apparently are a fruit. Related to melons or some such rubbish. So perhaps a mixture of melon/cucumber goodness might be appropriate in my soon to be implemented cider.
I'm going to start with this:
10-12 peeled cucumbers (these things are huge)
4 cups cantaloupe/ honey dew Mellon juice (experimenting)
1 lb raisons
2 Gallons local stayman juice.
2 lbs sugar
Still considering yeasts
