And the sugar all turns to....?
Well, not alcohol in this case but syrup.
This is the rhubarb and sugar left standing overnight before boiling up for jam/conserve. Presumably a chemical reaction takes place between the sugar and the rhubarb - I've no idea but the same thing happens with sugar and courgettes or pumpkins.
