1. Heat rhubarb and maple syrup over low heat, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb begins to release its water. Turn heat up to medium and bring to a boil. Reduce heat until liquid maintains a nice simmer.

  2. Let it bubble away, stirring frequently, until rhubarb is very soft and some water evaporates—about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour through a fine-mesh sieve. You will need to scrape and squash the pulp to extract all of the rosy liquid.

  3. Stir vanilla into syrup. Use the syrup as-is to flavor drinks and yogurt. If you’d like it thicker for drizzling, put it back on the heat and bring to a simmer. Reduce until desired thickness is reached.
