  • 8 cups rhubarb cut
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 Tbsp grated lemon rind
  • 1 1/2 cups lemon juice


  • Bring rhubarb, water, sugar and lemon zest to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until rhubarb breaks apart. This will take longer if you are doubling the recipe.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Strain using cheesecloth or fine sieve. Discard pulp and let syrup cool.


Serve one part syrup to 3 parts water or soda water.
