    I deseed cucumber and tomato sometimes. Cucumber is easy. Just quarter lengthways and cut the seeds. I am not a fan of the spoon method

    I've heard of destringing celery but don't do it myself. I peel carrot and potatoes. Sometimes I'll remove tomato seeds (I don't like tomato) and definitely do not remove cucumber seeds as I love them.

    I've never deliberately peeled the stringy bits of celery unless I've cut the celery and it looks like the picture above. But with sharp knives it just cuts through them so I never seem to have the issue. I also always peel carrot. I peel cucumber too which DH thinks is weird, but mum used to get reflux/heartburn from it so I've always peeled it. What did surprise me though was to find out that people peel mushrooms!

    Don't remove strings. But I don't peel carrots either. Just a good wash for all.
    We don't eat a lot of celery though. Might be a thing......

    Yes! My mum peels mushrooms. And cucumbers. And de-strings celery. But this is the woman who also irons sheets, tea towels, pillow cases and has only just stopped ironing creases into jeans
    AFM - because I grew up in above said lunatic household I used to do those things. Til I realized I had better things to do with my time haha. So no more peeling and de-stringing here. I do however always peel carrots and potatoes I peel depending how I'm cooking them.

    I don't iron sheets but I do iron everything else you've mentioned Not creases into jeans though. I hate creases in pants. I usually put my new work pants through the wash a couple of times so I can iron OUT the creases that seem to be manufactured in to them. In saying that, if someone were to iron my sheets for me each time I washed them, I would be so happy. There's nothing like freshly pressed sheets after they've been on the line. I would love it even more after DH puts them through the dryer and they come out all wrinkly.

    I come from a family of non carrot-peelers. However, I've been converted by dh. He's successfully convinced me that if you don't peel it then it tastes slightly bitter. As for celery, I never would have thought to destring it!

    I peel carrots, except for stew or soup...or roast lol
    I have never peeled celery, or de-seeded cucumber.
    I started peeling mushrooms as that's how H eats them- I don't eat mushrooms but never used to peel them.
