Preparation

  • Rhubarb macerate with honey, green tea, mint and various spices - Preparation step 1Remove the leaves from the rhubarb stalks, which are poisonous. Then clean the wood with a vegetable cleaner or simply try peeling at one end, 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 and then dried with a paper towel.
    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, green tea, mint and various spices, obtained by maceration, can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. We recommend consumption in 3 days.

If we had to choose between cold maceration and the classic syrup obtained by boiling, the maceration is much more valuable in terms of nutritional values, because it has not been subjected to a thermal process. The only disadvantage of macerate is that it does not last long and must be consumed in a short time, while the syrup obtained by boiling can be kept sterilized for up to 1-2 years.

Administration

Rhubarb macerate with honey, green tea, mint and various spices can be consumed both for therapeutic purposes and as a soft drink, tonic 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.
It is not recommended to consume it in the form of juice immediately after a meal.

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