My Favourite Rhubarb Recipes

Rhubarb Cordial

2 kgs chopped rhubarb stalks – place in bowl

2 litres boiling water – pour over chopped rhubarb stalks

Allow to sit for 24 hours

Then tip above into a large saucepan and add the following:

1.25kgs sugar

1 litre pineapple juice (canned, bottled or fresh)

Bring to the boil, stirring, then switch off and allow to cool

When cold, push through a sieve (Save pulp to make rhubarb crumble or have on cereal etc)

Pour liquid into bottles (makes approximately 4 litres)

Store in fridge until required

Note: This is very refreshing in hot weather – dilute with water and serve with ice
