I've always had a garden. I enjoy a challenge! I love the rewards when it all comes together. And I learn something new nearly every day. Perfect 🌻

I haven’t Jacqueline. It would be very versatile. How do you make it? @awomanonabike

It’s very easy to make but you need to freeze it or bottle it. You can’t make a rhubarb gimlet without it so worth the faff! Hang on a mo and I’ll check the recipe…

Combine 250ml water, 200g caster sugar and 250g rhubarb chopped into pieces. Bring to the boil then cook on low for 15-20 mins. Sieve then bottle or freeze the syrup. The sieved rhubarb is gorgeous with yoghurt 😋
