Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK
Due to Brexit, we are not able to deliver to the UK. We are working on a solution on how we can continue to bring a wide range of Lubera plants to the UK and directly to our customers' homes in the future. However, such a solution will not be available before 2022 or 2023.

Rhubarb Syrup

The season starts soon and you can start earlier if you now put an unused flowerpot over your rhubarb plant(s). This warms the plant and the plant also wants light, so it grows towards the hole in the bottom of the pot. As soon as the frost has passed, you can take the pot off the rhubarb and begin the harvest, while the other plants that had no protective cover over the winter will need a little longer until the stalks can be harvested.

So now to the syrup. This is my favourite syrup by the way! I make it every year and store a few bottles in the cellar.

1 kg of rhubarb
1 organic lemon, cut into slices
750 g of sugar
3 tablespoons of citric acid (because of the shelf life)
2.5 litres of water

Clean the rhubarb and cut the stalks into pieces.
Wash the lemon under hot water (because of the wax coating that citrus fruit usually has) and cut into slices.
Bring both the rhubarb and lemon to a boil together in a large pan with the water and the sugar.
Cool, cover and let stand for approximately 24 hours (the mixture attracts insects).
Sieve the liquid. Add the citric acid and bring the mixture to a boil again.
Fill hot into sterilised bottles. Close the lid and enjoy after cooling with soda or tap water.

For summer evenings, you can fill the syrup into a champagne glass and add a fine sparkling wine. Enjoy the rising moon and take a sip of the refreshing drink from time to time.

Have fun with the rhubarb harvest!
