Pink Rhubarb Punch Recipe

Rhubarb is the featured ingredient in the blush-colored punch Rebecca Mininger, Orrville, Ohio, regularly makes. "A friend passed the recipe on to me," she tells. "We enjoy it so much that I thought others might, too."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 8 cups water
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry gelatin powder
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 6 cups ginger ale, chilled

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, bring rhubarb and water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid (save rhubarb for another use).
  • 2. In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and gelatin powder in boiling water. Stir in pineapple and lemon juices. Stir in rhubarb liquid; refrigerate until chilled.
  • 3. Just before serving, pour into a punch bowl and stir in ginger ale. Yield: about 5 quarts.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
