Recipes: Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup

A couple of weeks ago I made this Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup, and it came out delicious. You can use it in mix drinks, over ice cream, or whatever you would like. It is really easy to make, and takes no time at all. You can double this recipe if you need more but it makes about 1 1/2 cups. Here is my recipe

- 1 lb. Strawberries Hulled and Quartered
- 1 Stalk of Rhubarb cut into 1 inch pieces
-1/2 cup Sugar
-1/4 cup Water

Combined all ingredients in a pot and heat over medium heat. Stir frequently. The rhubarb will begin to break down in to small threads, thats when you know that the syrup is ready. Hold a strainer over a heat proof bowl and slowly pour the mixture through the strainer into the bowl, you will need to do this in batches, cleaning the fruit fibers out the strainer as you go. When you have the syrup strained you can pour it into a glass jar or plastic container. Let the syrup cool completely and then store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
