Chicken liver pate in cucumber boats

Top each cucumber “boat” with a neat teaspoon of pâté, and a dollop of redcurrant jelly. Garnish with a little watercress. The cucumber boats can be cut a day in advance and stored in a bowl covered with damp kitchen towel in the fridge – simply assemble before serving.
