Honey Rhubarb Iced Tea

8 stalks rhubarb, cut into 3 inch sections
8 cups water
1/3 cup honey (or sugar) to taste ( I did 1/3 cup honey and about 1/4 c sugar and we serve this with tons of ice to dilute)
mint for garnish (optional…and I opt not to)=
Add rhubarb to water and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour
Strain, add honey/sugar (to taste) and  serve iced.
Enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy again!
We have three enormous rhubarb plants in one of our garden beds.  Our wonderful neighbor, Mr. Scoop (not his real name, but this is what we have all taken to calling him…his wife is Mrs. Scoop) gave us the plants when my mom was sick, knowing that we visited her at least monthly up in New Hampshire and that she loved rhubarb.  I cannot bear to part with the plants, given the history of them, but we don’t really eat much rhubarb, and these plants are quite fruitful.  I’m always looking for people to share the fruit with, or new ways to use our harvests, and I was so excited when my sister told me about Rhubarb Tea- although I love to put honey in things for many reasons, so I changed things up a bit.
I’m thinking about doing this with a spritz of seltzer.  Thoughts?

  • Have you tried strawberry-rhubarb pie? that is what my mom always made with rhubarb. I never liked it b/c it had tapioca in it, which I thought looked like fish eyes or eggs growing up. But now I am getting past that fear and I have started to like it! :)
