This tangy-sweet beverage is not actually made with tea, so I don’t
know why it’s called iced tea. But it’s very good, and quite refreshing!!
Rhubarb Iced Tea
8 cups diced rhubarb (See *Note)
8 cups water
1-1/4 cups sugar
In a large heavy saucepan, add the rhubarb and water.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 hour.
Strain the rhubarb, then add to a heat-proof pitcher.
Add the sugar; stir well, and allow to cool before placing in the refrigerator.
Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
When ready to serve; pour the chilled tea in glasses filled with ice.
Yields: 2 quarts
*Note: If making this tea using frozen rhubarb, simmer (covered) for about 1 hour and 30 minutes; stirring occasionally.
