This is my two cents worth on the subject of rhubarb.  It took ten years to get the rid of the rhubarb in my yard!Sandy

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   8      pounds        rhubarb
   8      quarts        boiling water
   6      pounds        sugar
   2      packages      seeded raisins
   4      each          lemon -- sliced
   4      each          orange -- sliced
   2      each          yeast cake

Cut rhubarb into small pieces.  Pour boiling water over it in large crock.  Cover and let stand one week, stir well each day.  At the end of the week, strain and to the liquid add the white sugar, raisins, lemons, oranges and the yeast cakes (crumbled in liquid).  Let this stand until it stops working, approximately four weeks.  Maybe less time if it is warm weather.  Strain through several thickness of cheese cloth.  Bottle, keep in cool place.  "That is it."  Essie Clark, June 1968
