This is a good year for rhubarb here in Calgary:  we've gotten plenty of moisture and the temperatures have been relatively cool so far.  I don't grow rhubarb myself, but there is a plant at the community garden where I rent a plot.  Because there are 27 plotholders, one rhubarb plant doesn't go very far, so out of fairness, a system of rationing has been implemented.   Late last week I picked my allowance, and mulled over how best to use it.  I had a refreshing drink in mind, but I seem to have misplaced my recipe for Rhubarb Fizz, and the ones I've found (so far) on the Internet aren't the same. The organic lemons and strawberries I had in the fridge finally clinched it for me.  Here is what I made:   

Rhubarb-Strawberry-Honey Lemonade 

4 stalks rhubarb, washed and chopped into 1" chunks  

1/3 cup honey  

4 cups water  

1 1/2 cups strawberries, washed, hulled, and chopped  (I wish my alpine strawberries were ready to pick now - I will have to make this again once they are!)
