Preparation

  • Rhubarb macerate with honey - Preparation step 1Remove the leaves from the rhubarb stem, as they are poisonous. Then clean the wood with a vegetable cleaner or simply try peeling them from one end, by pinching with the tip of a knife, then pull the wood fiber. After removing the wood, the rhubarb sticks are washed well under running water.
  • Leave the rhubarb stalks to dry, eventually dab with a kitchen towel to remove water left over after washing.
    Rhubarb already has a high water content. It is very important to dry them well, otherwise it is possible to ferment in the process of maceration with honey.

Observations
Rhubarb syrup with honey obtained by maceration can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. We recommend consumption in 3 days.

Rhubarb syrup with honey obtained by maceration is much more valuable in terms of nutritional values than the classic rhubarb syrup, because it has not been subjected to a thermal process.

Administration

Rhubarb macerate can be consumed both for therapeutic purposes and as a soft drink with plain or mineral water, with a very pleasant taste.

Consume one tablespoon (~ 30 ml) taken as such or in combination with various liquids when you feel the need. However, it is not recommended to exceed 5 servings a day, as it can become a diuretic.

For therapeutic purposes, one tablespoon before meals is recommended, 3 times a day.
