by Karen Larard

Refreshing summer drink with hint of elderflower


  • 1 Kilogram Rhubarb
  • 5 Elderflowers
  • 400 Grams Brown sugar
  • 100 Grams Sugar
  • ½ Liters Water
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Found some rhubarbs and some Elderflowers in my friends garden

    Step 2

    This plus water is all you need

    Step 3

    Cut the rinsed rhubarb into small pieces.

    Step 4

    Cut the flowers off. Don't rinse the flowers. But look out for small insects.

    Step 5

    Add the sugar

    Step 6

    Add water

    Step 7

    Give it a stir.And boil it for 30 minutes.

    Step 8

    After 30 minutes the rhubarbs and the Elderflowers have released there flavour but are still whole so that the juice is relatively clear.

    Step 9

    Drain. You can make all kinds of fruit juice this way. With Strawberries, gooseberries, blue berries and so on.

    Step 10

    Cool down the juice and dilute with water to taste. Serve with ice cubes. The concentrated juice will keep in the fridge for a month.
