Cucumber Sauce


  • 3 or 4 cucumbers
  • 2 ounces of butter
  • 6 tablespoonfuls of brown gravy


Peel the cucumbers, quarter them, and take out the seeds; cut them into small pieces; put them in a cloth, and rub them well, to take out the water which hangs about them. Put the butter in a saucepan, add the cucumbers, and shake them over a sharp fire until they are of a good colour. Then pour over it the gravy, mix this with the cucumbers, and simmer gently for 10 minutes, when it will be ready to serve.

Time: Altogether, 1/2 hour.
