Dessert cucumber jelly


Cucumbers without skin 2 Kg
juice-puree of red or white currant 500 ml
sugar 600g + 250g
fresh mint and basil 20 leaves each
lemon acid 1 tsp
agar-agar or Zhelfix (optional)

Cooking method

  • An interesting and unusual dessert cucumber jelly is great for any dairy and sour-milk products.
  • The idea for this jelly came to me when I was doing candied cucumber... It turned out great!
  • Peel the cucumbers and cut them into cubes about 1cm x 1cm.
  • Dessert cucumber jelly
  • Dip them in boiling water (1l) with 2 teaspoons of baking soda for 1 minute. Throw in a colander and immediately rinse with cold water. Sprinkle 600 g of sugar and leave to give juice for 1.5-2 hours.

  • Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Then I added 3 sprigs of fresh mint (this is not necessary) and left to cool and soak in syrup overnight (8 hours worked). Bring it to a boil again, cook for 2-3 minutes and put it in a colander. We collect the syrup. Throw away the mint.

  • We squeeze out the juice from red or white currants (about 1 kg of berries). I have white currants. We take 500ml of juice, heat to a boil with 250g of sugar and cook for 5 minutes.

  • Since the gelling properties of white currants are not as high as those of red ones, just in case I added 10 g of agar-agar, mixing it with cucumbers and letting it swell for 20 minutes. The total weight of cucumbers I got was 720g, I collected 1280ml of syrup. Add cucumbers and finely chopped basil and mint leaves to the currant juice. Add a teaspoon of citric acid (I added half a teaspoon). Mix everything well, bring to a boil and boil for 3-4 minutes. We lay out on prepared sterilized banks and close.

  • You can cook without currant juice, just returning 300 ml of their syrup to the cucumbers, but then you need to add agar-agar 10g or Zhelfix 3: 1 1 sachet, mix everything, bring to a boil and boil for 3-4 minutes. Boil the remaining syrup with mint and citric acid for 5 minutes and pour into sterilized bottles.

  • Can be used to impregnate biscuits, can be mixed with sparkling water.

Galyun, I advise you to build yourself, you are unlikely to wait for this beauty. But the cucumbers urgently need to be attached.
WAW !!! Well, vaasche, there are no words, only emotions and envy!
Linochka, you are smart !!!

We omit them in boiling water (1l) with 2 teaspoons of soda for 1 minute... Throw in a colander and immediately rinse with cold water.
Lina, clarify please meaning this action.
This helps to maintain the shape and consistency of the cucumber during further cooking and facilitates the penetration of the aromatic syrup.
Lina, in her life, would not believe that cucumbers and zucchini can be a delicious sweet dessert.however, you turned my world upside down! first I tried candied cucumber, and then jelly. this is something incredible! only by the seeds the people guessed that these were cucumbers)))
I'm brewing the second batch now. Thank you very much for the recipe !!!
