Rhubarb lemonade

I sure hope you’re not sick of rhubarb yet, because I have one more recipe for you. A few years ago, when I was new to rhubarb, Mike made this lemonade recipe, and it was just fantastic. We’ve made it a few time since then, including last night when we spiked it with rum and took it to a party. I suggest you do the same, if you get a chance!

Rhubarb lemonade

8 stalks rhubarb, chopped
8 cups water
1 cup sugar (or more to taste)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Bring water and rhubarb to a boil in a big pot. Let it simmer for about half an hour, then turn of the pot and let it sit until cool. Strain out the rhubarb. Add lemon juice and sugar and stir to combine.

Serve over ice cubes with a sprig of fresh mint. You can also add carbonated water to make it fizzy.

    Ooh, looks yummy. I just made a crisp yesterday with the rhubarb I snagged at the farmer’s market. I wish I would’ve seen this first! Next time …
