Method

For the Rhubarb Confit

Bring the sugar and water to a simmer in a small saucepan. Meanwhile, cut off the ends of the rhubarb, discarding any leaves, and use a paring knife to strip away the strings that run the length of the stalks.

Add the trimmings to the saucepan and simmer for about 2 minutes to infuse the syrup. Strain and discard the trimmings
