As soon as the rhubarb season starts, the question arises as to what to prepare with the delicious vegetable.

How to make syrup from the sour sticks.

The rhubarb harvest is in full swing, expected to last until June 21st.

You can already enjoy the early summer vegetable (yes, rhubarb is not a fruit) in all forms and rhubarb recipes.

For example as a crumble cake*, or deliciously covered with meringue.

However, one variation that has become increasingly popular in recent years is

rhubarb juice or syrup

.

With the

sweet and sour juice

, you can make wonderfully refreshing spritzers, but you can also easily refine sparkling wine or punch.

Once you learn how easy it is to make your own rhubarb syrup, you won't want to buy it again.

    Now cut the peeled sticks into pieces.

  • Now put the water in a large saucepan, stir in the sugar and let the whole thing come to a boil.

    Then add the rhubarb and let it

    simmer in the sugar water for about 30 minutes

    .

  • Then pour the rhubarb broth through a sieve into a saucepan to remove the pieces.

    Squeeze the cooked rhubarb thoroughly to squeeze out any juice.

  • Cook the brew in an open pot for another 30 to 40 minutes until it is reduced to about three quarters of the original amount.

  • Squeeze the lemon, remove any seeds and add the juice to the stock after about 20 minutes of boiling time.

  • Pour the brew while it is still hot into

    boiled, clean bottles or screw-top jars

    that you can seal tightly and leave to cool.

  • The

    rhubarb syrup will keep for about a year

    if you store it in a cool, dark place.
