Garner’s Cucumber Snake

Garner’s Cucumber Snake

The cheese and pickle hedgehog is a retro party classic – for a fresh take why not try this tasty culinary creature?

1. Rinse and dry cucumber. Cut a thin slice off one side to create a flat base. Mark skin with a canelling knife if wished.

2. Thread the wooden sticks with a Garner’s Sweet Pickled Baby Onion and a nugget of cheese, weave on a sliver of ham and finish with another onion.

3. Jab completed sticks into the cucumber in two wavy ‘tramlines’ up the centre from end to end.

4. Use a small vegetable knife to shape a mouth at one end and push in a piece of red bell pepper shaped as a forked tongue to complete the snake.

You can add more features to your snake if you wish – what about two pickled onion eyes or use some star anise, let your imagination run wild!
