Basic Rhubarb Syrup

When cleaning out my freezer for the season, I found that I had quite a bit of rhubarb left.  I'm working on ways to use ingredients I have on hand more efficiently. 

Basic Rhubarb Syrup
4 c. rhubarb, cleaned and chopped - (frozen is fine if that's what you have)
1 c. sugar
1 c. water

Simmer 15 - 20 minutes.  Strain the liquid for use.

Refrigerate or freeze.

A tablespoon or more of this syrup is delicious and thirst-quinching in a glass of ice water.  It is also a delicious sweetener in a cup of hot tea.  I'm looking forward to trying it in club soda, ginger ale, lemonade, ice tea. What else?
