Golden Fig Fine Foods

Rhubarb Simple Syrup

  • 2 C rhubarb, chopped
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Zest of 1 lime
  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 20 minutes (or until thickened).
  2. Let cool, place fine mesh sieve over bowl and strain out solids. *Resist the urge to press down…if you do, the syrup will be cloudy*
  3. Pour into clean jar.
  4. Can be kept in the fridge up to 1 month. Tasty in cocktails, delicious in club soda, yummy to sweeten lemonade.
