This didn't work for me at all. Hardly any rhubarb flavor and it turned into candy by 15 minutes of cooking. After straining, I put another three cups of rhubarb in 1 1/2 cups water in the pot and cooked it until soft, then added one cup of sugar and the rhubarb goo from this recipe and brought it to 200 degrees. Now I have an actual syrup. I would suggest you try another recipe for rhubarb syrup.
I really enjoyed this syrup, it was sweet, tart and very tangy, just perfect. I added the rhubarb syrup to gingerale for a lovely sweet drink. Next time, I am planning on adding it to club soda. This refreshing treat would be great with a shot of vodka. Thanks for sharing, I will be making this again for Thanksgiving dinner.
