rhubarb simple syrup

rhubarbsyrup-1With rhubarb season coming to an end next month, now is the perfect time to whip up a batch of simple syrup to celebrate the last few weeks of summer (sorry, but you all know it’s quickly approaching!). Simple syrups can be added to alcohol such as rum for rhubarb mojitos or sparkling water for a non-alcoholic version and left over cooked rhubarb can be used in yogurt or as a topping on your favorite desserts!
