Rhubarb Liqueur

You know you spend too much money at a place when...they'll harvest something out of their garden just for you!

I walked into a local organic farmstand that I frequent more times per week than I care to admit. I asked if they had any rhubarb, knowing that I hadn't seen any displayed for awhile now. She said, "not out front here, but come to the back and I'll cut some for you." Okay.

I wanted to try something new with these stalks, not that my boys would ever tire of rhubarb tarts. But I was thinking something savory...until I came across a post about "Danish" rhubarb liqueur. Since I had never heard of a Danish rhubarb liqueur, I accused two of my closest friends, who are Danish, of holding out on me. The answer: "Nope...never heard of that either. But sounds delicious...."

So, I'm going to give this a whirl and will let you know how it turns out. It must age for three to four months. Sounds as if it will be the perfect holiday present for some people.
