How to make it

  • Peel 6 cucumbers and cut into about 1-inch chunks and process in a food processor or blender until pureed.
  • Strain the puree through a cheesecloth-lined mesh strainer to extract the juice. You should end up with about one cup juice. Discard the solids.
  • Soften the gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water.
  • Combine the cucumber juice and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warmed, about 10 minutes, and remove from heat.
  • Stir gelatin into the cucumber mixture until dissolved.
  • Stir in the lemon juice and season with a pinch of salt, or to taste.
  • Peel remaining 1-2 cucumbers (depending on size of your mold).
  • Make thin ribbons of cucumber using vegetable peeler
  • Line your terrine mold (or loaf pan) with plastic wrap and then with cucumber ribbons.
  • Chill the mixture in the saucepan over a bowl of ice water, stirring occasionally, until the mixture just begins to thicken, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Pour into mold.
  • Chill until set, about 4 hours.

    Hm, interesting. I love those frozen cucumber-fruit bars (like a popsicle kind of thing) I can imagine this would be good!
