Rhubarb is one of the only fruits that can grow naturally in our climate-zone. With its lovely acidity and fruitiness, it is an asset to our kitchen.
It's an old tradition to make rhubarb lemonade, and it's very popular in the spring, since it's the first fruit that starts to grow after a long winter. Every household has its own recipe and this is our way of making it.
