  • cucumber ice-pops

    Have made these today - will let you know how they taste tomorrow!

    2 cucumbers
    juice of one lemon
    splash of water
    sugar to taste

    It's an exact recipe as you can see!

    How do you prepare the cucumbers?
    I've never made an ice-pop so you could be freezing them whole, for all I know

      I just cut the stem off, chopped into chunks, & blended everything for quite a long time, then put in ice-pop moulds from the pound shop, although yoghurt pots & a stick would also work, with foil over the pot & the stick stuck through to keep upright.

      OH & I just tried one each partially frozen & it was delicious! Going to use the same recipe to make sorbet.

        Belvoir do a cucumber, mint and rose geranium spritzer which is amazing. One day I'm going to grow enough cucumbers to make it. I imagine that would be nice in a lolly too.

          Now that's a blinking good idea, I have so many cucumbers coming at me that I've run out of people to give them to.

            Am going to look for more recipes to use up my glut.

              I think elderflower cordial mixed in would be good to with the cucumber in a sorbet. Just like the idea of preserving cucumbers not in a chutney or pickle as don't eat a lot of them.

                Well, we had the actual ice-pops. Children had one lick & hated them, although probably down to eldest child's penchant for disliking food of in the wrong mood (!) & youngest copying.

                Flavour delicious but a bit of a grainy texture. Not sure if it could be sieved through muslin to get rid of pulp?

                Half frozen it was great so will definitely do as a sorbet - think that will work better.

                Thinking of starting a thread about cucumber experiments
