Cucumber and Peppermint Sorbet

We don’t have an ice-cream machine, but in the continuing effort to do something with the cucumbers that are delivered in our vegetable bag, we have tried to make a cucumber sorbet.  We blended up the flesh and added peppermint leaves, shredding these in the food processor too.  We added a little sugar and water, and then put it in the freezer, making sure to stir the mix through with a fork every hour or so.  The result was not good – massive ice crystals and still the formidable taste of cucumber.
