Rhubarb Juice in the Making

It is rhubarb time and time to enjoy the first harvest of the summer garden. Apples and cherries are blooming, and since we have had a very cold spring the tulips are not all out yet. Imagine! There was a frost warning for last night but we were good here in the southern parts of the country (Finland).
I started the rhubarb season last weeks with pies. Took one to mom and now I’ve just set the first pot of juice to brew on the kitchen teller. This is an old juice recipe from mom and it is so easy.

You start with fetching the rhubarb (ca 500 g)  from the garden and cutting it into smallish pieces. Then you boil 1 1/2 l water, wash and slice a lemon and take our 1 dl of sugar. Pile the rhubarb, lemon and sugar in a large jar. Pour over boiling water and cover with a lid. Let stand in room temperature for a day.  Sieve and bottle.
Your juice is ready to be enjoyed, and keeps in the fridge for 2-3 days. I often put freeze this in small plastic bottles to enjoy in the winter.
