After the flowers have been cut off, add boiling water to allow a tea to begin. After this step, one can make jelly, jam, or juice or tea. One can also make tea out of the leaves.

Add some organic strawberry powder to some spring water and this juice is ready to boil and then be enjoyed.

Add 4-6 quarts of water, and boil until the Rhubarb is soft and i just let it sit for a bit. Add some lime or lemon if desired then strain. One could add any number of other fruits as well. Easy breezy and high in vitamins especially C’s! Will store in the frig for some time, although around here, it is gone fast!

One can take this liquid and make jam with this combination as well. One recipe We never use food coloring and it is a beautiful color all the same. And we enjoy a no-sugar version, may list that here next time that is made.

One can juice dandelion greens!
