It is the simple things in life. Like this rhubard simple syrup.

Rhubarb simple syrup. Now I know why they call it simple.

The rhubarb is plentiful at my Swede’s summer house. We have it. Our immediate neighbors have it. And I bet if I wandered around just a bit I’d find tons more.

rhubard
Simmering rhubarb, water, and sugar.

So my mother in love cleaned and peeled the rhubarb and then said,

“you’re on your own”.

But she said it in Swedish. So I found an easy peasy recipe on line for simple syrup.

Stored in my Swede’s mother’s mother’s glass bottle. So nice!

It calls for 1 part sugar and 1 part water to 4 parts rhubarb. Chop the rhubarb and add them with sugar and water to a heavy bottom pan. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. Strain and pour into a bottle. It will last ages in the fridge.

I plan to mix with bubbly, bubbly water, and may pour over desserts. I saved the rhubarb mash to spread on toast.

Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
