We love this Strawberry Gazpacho , a light and very refreshing cold strawberry soup with a hint of lime and elderflower. Perfect for the festive season and long summer days.
1 punnet of strawberries (stalks off) 250 gm
1/4 telegraph cucumber (150 gm) with the skin on
1/2 cup of cordial made with Barker's Lime and Elderberry Fruit Syrup ( 1 part of syrup to 5 parts of water.
1/2 sweet banana shaped long red pepper (seeded and roughly chopped)
The night beforehand freeze the cordial in an ice block tray
Just before serving whizz all the ingredients together to a soupy consistency and serve icy cold in glasses, garnished with a mint leaf.
