Rhubarb Slush Recipe

This thirst-quenching slush is a fun way to use rhubarb. I love to serve it for special get-togethers like a ladies' brunch or holiday meal. The rosy color and tangy flavor of this favorite spring crop come through in every sip. -Theresa Pearson, Ogilvie, Minnesota

"This is a great recipe. It is the prefect combo of sweet and tangy. I also tried this recipe using green apples to replace the rhubarb for my family who doesn't care for rhubarb, it is great BOTH ways! I will be doubling the recipe in the future, it disappears quickly! :)"

"I have made this punch since it first came out in the 1995 May /June edition of Taste of Home. I try to freeze a few batches of the cooked portion of the recipe to have on hand for a taste of spring at a winter party or shower. Always a great hit and a nice suprise when people discover it has rhubarb in it."
