Rhubarb & Ginger Juice or Cordial


  • Freshly gathered sound Rhubarb Stalks, washed, drained & cut into small pieces
  • Granulated Sugar according to taste- layered with the fruit;
  • For juice: 150 - 250g / 5½ - 9oz per one kilo of rhubarb; For cordial: 500 - 650g / 18 - 23oz per one kilo of rhubarb
  • Fresh Ginger Root – 100 - 200g / 3½ - 7oz peeled finely sliced, grated or shredded


  1. Fill the base pan of the steam juice extractor* with water according to the manufacturers’ instructions and put the juice collection pot then the steamer basket on top.
  2. Put alternate layers of rhubarb, sugar and the shredded ginger into the steamer basket
  3. Steam for approximately 45 minutes.
  4. Once the first juice has collected in the collection pot, draw it off into a jug and pour back over the fruit in the steaming basket - this helps to evenly distribute the sugar throughout the juice.
  5. When the process is finished tap off into hot screw cap bottles, tighten the closure and invert the bottle – this pasteurises the cap – and leave to cool.
  6. Store in a dark place – this helps to keep a good fresh colour.
  7. Once juice is opened it should be refrigerated & drunk within 3 days. Cordial, having a higher sugar content than juice, will keep for several weeks once opened.
