Norwegian Rhubarb Cordial / Rabarbrasaft

An old fashioned cordial recipe found on jaerbladet.no
Norwegian Rhubarb Cordial / Rabarbrasaft

You will get a wonderful color on the cordial if you let the peel stay on the rhubarb and if you want, you can also add a handfull of raspberries or strawberries for color and taste.

This is raw cordial so it has shorter shelf life than boiled cordials, but it’s the taste of season and summer so enjoy the moment. Bring a bottle at the summer party, it will guaranteed be a popular gift.

Rhubarb Liqueur / Rabarbra Likør

A somewhat strange liqueur recipe found on food52.com
Rhubarb Cordial_food52_post

By taking just a few minutes to throw 3 ingredients in a jar, you can make rhubarb season stretch a little bit longer — and a killer after-dinner drink while you’re at it. We also see this mixed with sparkling water (or sparkling wine!) and sipped by the pool.

As a man coming from a family who have made homemade liqueur for well over a hundred years I must say I’m deeply skeptical to the rhubarb/sugar ratio in this recipe. 2 pounds rhubarb/0,7 pound sugar makes for a extremely tart liqueur, missing the sweetness most people associate with this sort of beverage. Even when making cherry liqueur (a berry a lot less tart than rhubarb) I use a fifty/fifty ratio.  – Ted  😉

I grew up on desserts like these, Ready made desserts was scarse on the ground in the first 2 post-WWII dacades in Norway and what was available was both lacking in taste and quality. Besides making most of these is hardly more time consuming than opening some packages and mix and heat the content – Ted
