    I made this today, substituting dried mint for the rosemary..since I didn’t have any rosemary and did have TONS of rhubarb that I wanted to use. I also added a handful of fresh blackberries that I had on hand and it turned out great. I saved the cooked rhubarb and I think it tastes great, and would be wonderful served with chicken or pork. Actually I like substituting cooked rhubarb for butter in cookie recipes. I omit half the butter and use rhubarb puree (cooked rhubarb) instead. It works great and makes the recipe a little better for you. I have also used cooked rhubarb as a nutritional filler for pasta sauce. Just saute a cup of rhubarb with your onions etc. for your sauce, and they cook down and are not noticeable taste-wise, but add body to the sauce and some nutrients. We have SO MUCH rhubarb here, I am always looking for unique ways to use it. Thanks for the recipe

    I’m not a huge rosemary fan, but this is a delicious drink. Definitely summery and refreshing. Although, I used much less sugar than what was called for.
    Don’t worry about putting rhubarb in the title, it is what caught my attention!
    Thanks!

    Hi Elise,

    I made this this other night and it really is terrific. I couldn’t bring myself to compost the rhubarb pulp, so I boiled down some more rhubarb in order to make a crisp. I blended the pulp (to make the rosemary less crunchy) with the added rhubarb to dilute the rosemary and added the standard brown sugar-oats-butter topping. It’s really, really good. Especially with homemade vanilla ice cream.

    I’m a huge fan of rhubarb syrup, and tend to slip in either a bit of fresh ginger or a splash of rosewater. I’ll definitely try some rosemary in the next batch.

    Love it! This recipe is the bomb. I have made it several times since you first posted it, Elise, and it is the first thing I think of doing with that rhubarb growing in the corner of my garden under the lilac bush.
