Season to taste, and simmer until cucumber is soft.
Add grated cheese and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Put through mill or sieve, stir in cream, and when cool store in refrigerator.
Two or three finely cut cucumber rings make a pleasing garnish to this cold soup when served.
Here is an old Kentish recipe supplied by a friend in whose family the book has been for generations.
At a guess, I should say that this is an early nineteenth century recipe.
