Cucumber Cups

  1. Cut the cucumber into 2.5 cm lengths.
  2. Remove the skin of the cucumber pieces by using a 3.5 cm round cutter.

Macadamia Puree

  1. Process the macadamia nuts in a food processor until a paste is formed.
  2. Gradually add warm water until thick and creamy consistency.
  3. Season to taste with salt and spoon the puree into cucumber cups until just below the top, leaving room for the apple jelly.

To Serve

  1. Top each of the cups with half a candied walnut, spoon one teaspoon of apple jelly on top of the walnut and serve immediately.


  • A teaspoon can be used in replace of a Parisian scoop to remove the centre of the cucumber.
