I grew up on a farm in Alaska and we had a huge 20′X20′ rhubarb patch. I had more rhubarb than I care to remember. One thing that my mom used to do was make rhubarb juice. You have too cook it down first, you can’t (or don’t want to) juice it raw. She would add the sugar at the last part of cooking it down and then strain it. This would create a concentrate, we just add water to make the juice, or we would also use it to make rhubarb meraingue pie.
