    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.

    Waffled Chicken Quesadillas with Chipotle Pepper Sauce

    These whimsical weeknight quesadillas offer a great excuse to break out the long-forgotten waffle iron. The smoky, tangy pepper sauce is the perfect sidekick for this dish, but it’s also wonderful when tossed with pasta, stuffed into sandwiches, and slathered on burgers. TIP : When assembling quesadillas, keep fillings centred 1/2 in (1.25 cm) from the edge of the tortilla so they don’t spill over. TIP : Chipotle chiles are dried, smoked jalapenos. Adobo is a slightly sweet red sauce. Put them together in a can and they become a versatile pantry staple to add deep smoky heat to sauces, dips, marinades, and soups. No waffle iron? Then make these quesadillas using this skillet method. Place 1 tortilla in skillet, preferably cast iron, and cook over medium heat until dark spots appear and bottom is crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn over and cook until crispy and darkened on the other side. Remove tortilla from skillet and replace with another tortilla. Cook until darkened and crispy on one side, flip, and top with stuffing ingredients. Place crispy tortilla on top, press down gently, cover pan, and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
