The question to test was simple: does the shape effect taste?
The experimental design: a cucumber cut into different shapes. Sticks, circles, shredded.
The investigator. She first diligently observed the differences, noting size, shape, texture. Some had obvious seeds, some did not. Some Then the tasting.
First spears, then the circles, then the shreds. Apparently they all had the same flavor, but the shreds had the best texture. Good to know.
Don't tell Erin she ate 1/4 of a cucumber in the process.
