    3 cups (750 mL) sugar

    In a large saucepan stir together water, sugar, rhubarb, and lemon rind; bring to a boil.
    Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring until sugar is dissolved and rhubarb breaks up. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

    Strain liquid through fine sieve (or fine colander if you don’t mind some fruit in your drink).

    Allow to cool.

    When ready to serve, mix 3 parts of water to 1 part of rhubarb lemonade syrup. Serve in glass with ice cubes.

    Note: You can freeze syrup in containers to use throughout the summer.

    Makes 20 servings.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
