Rhubarb a plenty!

Rhubarb plants are bursting forth!! This is one of my six plants around the yard.   Need rhubarb, organic , wholesome and makes great muffins, pies, punch and upside down cakes???

Here is a great recipe we have been using for Rhubarb Punch


2 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
2 cups water
juice of 2 lemons
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 litre 7 up or Ginger Ale

Boil rhubarb, water and lemon juice until rhubarb is soft.  Add sugar and boil again.  Strain rhubarb pulp through a colander over a large bowl.  Cool Rhubarb  juice, just before serving add your pop, and maybe some fresh strawberries or raspberries to make it a pinky sangria.  It's been a hit every time.

If you want a little different flavour substitute the lemon for 1 tbsp. of grated ginger, less sweet and yummy too. Don't overdo the ginger, can get a little nasty!

Enjoy!
