How to make tea out of Rhubarb
For approximately two quarts:
8 cups rhubarb, cut into 1 inch pieces
8 cups water
Juice and grated rind of one orange or lemon (avoid the white pith under the
3/4 cup sugar
I pint fresh strawberries, mashed (optional)

rhubarb with a spatula to extract all the juice. Stir in the lemon or orange juice
