Simple and Delicious Rhubarb Syrup


Rhubarb is a great plant that I am able to grow in abundance here.

I like to be able to share it with friends and I still have a ton left over for myself.

It’s a good thing I have some great rhubarb recipes to turn to.

This super simple syrup is my favorite way to use my rhubarb stores. I like that it can be made with fresh or frozen rhubarb so I can get the taste of summer even in the middle of our freezing winters.

This is a decently large recipe and if you don’t have eight cups of rhubarb you can totally cut the recipe in half, but if you are like me you will more than likely double the recipe instead of halving it!

I have heard that this syrup is really good on vanilla ice cream but we don’t have ice cream in our house much and personally, I just really like how it tastes with a Sprite or lemon lime pop so that’s always my default, but feel free to try it however you prefer.

If you are going to use it as a drink I usually do approximately 1 part rhubarb syrup to about 6 parts of my other beverage (generally Sprite).

I keep this stored in the fridge and honestly have no idea how long it would be good for, we’ve always finished it before it’s gone bad!
