earthly delights csa recipe :: rhubarb ginger simple syrup

i'm a fan of recipes that are:
1. crazy easy, and 2. crazy good.
this fulfills both requirements.

:: rhubarb ginger simple syrup ::
{it's a special sneak peek at the beginnings of an earthly delights cookbook}
take a moment to admire its pale pink color.
don't you think it would make an amazing gift?
mix this delicious syrup with bubbly water
for a kid-friendly rhubarb-ginger ale.

mix it with gin or vodka and soda
for grown-ups.

we haven't tried it on vanilla ice cream yet,
although that is highly recommended.

here's how to make it:
1½ cups sugar
1 cup water
2 cups sliced rhubarb
1 cup chopped ginger

simmer water & sugar until dissolved.
add rhubarb & ginger and simmer until soft.
remove from heat & allow to cool.
strain and store in a canning jar in the fridge.

it is oh, so ginger-y.
and i'll keep you posted about the
earthly delights farm cookbook.
