Who in Minnesota doesn’t have access to a rhubarb plant? If you don’t have one yourself, you can almost certainly find a friend or family member to share with. The bitterness of rhubarb requires a lot of sugar to balance out the flavors, but the result is this wonderful rhubarb syrup that is versatile and delicious. Thin simple syrups make for a great drink mix, and thicker syrup can be used on everything from pancakes to ice cream.
