Rhubarb Simple Syrup

Rhubarb always, ALWAYS makes me think of my Grandma Esther.  I have great memories of running out in her backyard, past her giant (GIANT!!!!) garden to the back fence that separated their yard from a farmers field.  Along that back fence was a lush, green row of rhubarb plants.
