Rhubarb syrup

To make a syrup, remove the rhubarb from the liquid, turn the heat up and reduce until you get a syrupy consistency. This tastes great over ice cream.


  1. Put the rhubarb into a saucepan with the orange zest, juice, sugar and 2 tbsp water. Bring to the boil then simmer for 8 mins until the rhubarb is cooked but still holds its shape.
