Rhubarb Nectar

This one is for Sam :) This is sooo tasty when mixed with 7-up or soda water!


10 cups (2.5 L) chopped rhubarb (about 3 lb/1.5 kg)
3 cups (750 mL) water
1 strip each orange and lemon rind
2 cups (500 mL) granulated sugar


In large saucepan, combine rhubarb, water and orange and lemon rind; bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until rhubarb is broken up.

Strain through cheesecloth-lined strainer into clean saucepan. Stir in sugar and bring to boil. Pour into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch (5 mm) headspace. Top with lids and screw bands; process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Shake or stir before using.

This is really yummy, and a great way to hack away at a huge rhubarb bush! I found using straight Sprite too sweet as a mixer, so I used half sparkling water and half Sprite.
