Rhubarb Punch


  • freshly picked rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup reserved rhubarb liquid from boiling
  • 2 TBS maple syrup
  • ice
  • seltzer water


A lovely springtime punch is made by chopping freshly picked rhubarb into thin slices, and boiling until soft in a small amount of water. Strain through a sieve, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid, and cool. Stir maple syrup, and the reserved rhubarb liquid in a glass, add ice cubes, then fill with seltzer water. This recipe can be adjusted for sweetness by adding more maple syrup.
