    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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