Quke And Berry Ice Blocks

 

Makes: 12

Prep time: 1 hour + 6 hours freezing

Cooking time: 14 mins

2 x 250g Qukes baby cucumbers

500ml lemonade, ginger beer or lemon lime and bitters

3 tbs fresh blueberry cordial

 

Fresh Blueberry Cordial

1 x 125g Perfection Blueberries

½ cup water

½ cup white sugar

1 tbs lemon juice

½ tsp tartaric acid, optional

 

Method

For the cordial; combine the water and sugar in a saucepan, stir constantly over medium heat without boiling until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes without stirring. Add the lemon juice and blueberries and simmer for 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the tartaric acid and set aside to cool.

Pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Strain, discarding the skins. Refrigerate until cold. Once cold pour into a clean sterilised jar and refrigerate for up to 1 month.

Slice 10 Qukes lengthways, each into 5, then arrange, standing upright into 12 x 80ml (1/3 cup) popsicle moulds.

Mix 250ml lemonade, ginger beer or lemon lime and bitters with 2 tablespoons of blueberry cordial. Carefully pour into the molds so they are half full. Cover and freeze for 2 hours until partially frozen.

Remove from the freezer, insert a paddle-pop stick into the centre of each mould. Top up with remaining lemonade. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight if time permits. Remove from the moulds and serve immediately.

 

Tip

For Qukes® and mango ice blocks, chop 250g Qukes® and 2 Calypso® Mangoes, spoon into popsicle moulds, fill with lemonade, ginger beer or lemon lime and bitters, freeze until firm.
