I never tasted rhubarb juice before and when I searched on the internet if you can drink the juice of this gorgeous plant and
yes, you can and it actually tastes really good. I tried now both with lime and without. I prefer it to be just pure rhubarb and of course organic sugar. This juice recipe is concentated so you need to dilute or add water in it when you are about to drink it. Here we go!
Well first, choose the most red rhubarb. There are apparently so many kind of rhubarb that varies in color. The one I used here is just a very light red and almost pinkish in color but you can just add red food color if you want it to be really red. I prefer mine without any additives.
Hvis du vil have opskrift på dansk så har jeg vedh. en pdf fil klar til at downloade her…
- 1 kl. Rhubarb – washed and sliced into max. 1 cm.
- 1000 ml water – as you can see the ratio is 1:1 for 1 kl. rhubarb you add 1L water
- Organic sugar (500g per 1 kilo of juice you will be collected)
That’s it! I want my recipes to be as easy and tasty as possible. Now, bring your sliced rhubarb on a big pot and add 1 liter water. Bring it to a boil and stir once in a while for around 20 minutes then set aside and let it stand for another 20 minutes. Then filter it to remove all the rhubarb. Once you only have the juice then weigh it and pour into another pot. If you have 1 liter of juice then add 500 gram of sugar. Boil it until sugar is melted. Let it cool then transfer it to your prefered glas and store in the fridge and this will last for a week. If you want to freeze it so it can last longer then use a plastic bottle, I use any soda plastic bottles.
When ou are ready to drink it: Dilute 1 part of this juice in 3 parts water then add ice and there you go. It’s very refreshing:)
