Rhubarb Time

It's rhubarb time - well, not quite up where we're living now but it is in town and thankfully I have a generous gardening friend - so that means that it is rhubarb syrup time too.  I made this last year and we loved it (recipe is here and on the sidebar).  Even though we still have some frozen cubes of last year's syrup we wanted to make more.
It is so easy to make - just rhubarb, water and sugar.
It only takes a few minutes and then you have the syrup as well as some stewed rhubarb ( I like this on oatmeal).
And the colour is just beautiful!  Such a fun summer drink, now...if only we had some summertime weather to go along with it.

Wow, what a beautiful colour! And rhubarb is so good for you.

OH, I have seen so much on rhubarb lately. I must get some. We are in the middle of Raspberries. And I have a counter full of jars waiting to be filled.

I love rhubarb, but can never find it around here, nor grow it (I think, at least that is what I have been told.)

What a lovely color!
