We have been looking for different recipes for cucumbers. I found Cucumber Bread on the old Tinternet and T'web. Of course we tinkered with the recipe and came up with Cucumber Soda Bread.
Here's what we did: We picked a cucumber. Sliced it vertically in half. Scooped out any seeds and pith with a spoon. Then peeled the skin. Then we grated the cucumber. Then we strained the juice out with a spoon pressing the cucumber through the sieve. You should end up with a cup full.
Then you get a brown bread mix. We used Oudlum's Traditional Brown Soda Mix. Followed the instructions to make the bread which is written (printed) on the back of the mix paper bag and added the cup of cucumber.
Bob's your uncle: Cucumber Soda Bread.
You can see the pieces of cucumber shinning and glistening through the bread.
Makes you wonder what other vegetables you can put in your bread. We enjoyed our cucumber soda bread and would definitely make it again.
On a sad note: Poor old Fido our Jack Russell who I often post pictures and write about on this blog. Decided it was time to go to Doggy Heaven last week.
Number two son wrapped Fido in her blanket with the paw prints printed on it and he helped me dig the hole next to her dad Toby's (Jake Russell, obviously!)and Zeta the Border Collie's grave. I was very proud of our son and realised he's not a child any more
Fido is missed very much like our other departed four legged pals. She was 16 in our years or 112 in dogs. We've still got Scamp the pint sized Jack Russell and Domino our white cat with the black tail. He's always sat on the window sill every morning looking through the kitchen window, waiting for his breakfast. Hope you're all OK?
