Rhubarb is such a versatile vegetable. Combine it with strawberries and you have a delightful dessert. I have three rhubarb plants that refuse to give up giving stalks of beautiful red loveliness I didn't know what to do until I stumbled upon this recipe for Rhubarb Juice by www.oasisnewfeatures.com/homemade-rhubarb-juice So here is where I have a confession to make. I admire the Amish and I want to be Amish: this is the part where my family laughs...they know how to do the best of everything from handmade and homemade. This punch is fantastic. It makes an enormous amount, so be warned.
