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.
- 6 cups chopped rhubarb approximately 4-5 stalks
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
In a medium saucepan, add the rhubarb, sugar, and water.
Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the rhubarb has softened.
Set a fine mesh strainer over a glass bowl and pour the rhubarb mixture into the strainer to strain out all of the rhubarb solids.
Store the simple syrup in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
