Rhubarb Lemonade

I have made some unusual lemonades from the garden including basil lemonade and strawberry lemonade, but the latest recipe is a first for me. And I really like it as it is a tart, and refreshing drink. It’s lemonade made with rhubarb!


12 stalks rhubarb, snapped into pieces between 4 and 6 inches in length
10 cups water
1/3 cup sugar or as much as you like. I prefer to use a smaller amount sugar and let guests add more as they like.
Juice of six lemons
One lemon cut in slices for garnish or use
fresh mint sprigs from the garden garnish.

Bring the rhubarb and water to a boil and simmer it for on the stove top for an hour. Strain the hot liquid, add sugar and stir to dissolve. Add juice from six lemons. Cool and serve with a sprig of mint or a slice of lemon.
