Rhubarb Syrup


1 kg rhubarb

700g sugar

1 lime

350ml water


  • Wash the rhubarb sticks and cut off the ends. Chop into thin slices and put into a large pot. Cover with all of the sugar, stir well. Let stand for a minimum of 1 hour. The longer it is left to sit, the more juice the sugar will extract.rhubarbsyrup
  • Squeeze out the lime and add to the water, then pour over the sliced rhubarb.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until the rhubarb has turned to mush.
  • Strain the rhubarb through a fine sieve and squeeze out thoroughly.
