When you have a lot a rhubarb one of the easiest things to do with it is make a simple syrup.
Seriously, syrups are ah-may-zing! You can make so many different things with them. And right now I’m overflowing with ideas of what to do with it all. It will probably all be gone in a few days, no doubt.
Here’s how to make your own rhubarb simple syrup! Your very own!!!
- 4 cups rhubarb, chopped
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- Place chopped rhubarb and water in a medium saucepan on medium-high heat and allow to boil. Once boiling reduce to medium-low heat and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The rhubarb will turn a yellow-ish color and look mushy.
- Strain solution through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl. Press the rhubarb solids a little with the back of a spoon to extract more liquid.
- Return strained liquid to small, clean sauce pan on medium heat and add sugar. Allow sugar to dissolve (approximately 1-2 minutes).
- Let the solution cool and then transfer syrup to sealed container.
- Keep refrigerated in sealed container. Lasts approximately 2 weeks.
