Wash and peel the rhubarb. Cut into segments about 3 or 4 cm long. Try to make pieces of the same size for an even cooking.
In a saucepan, prepare a syrup by melting sugar and honey in water. Poach the rhubarb pieces by dipping them in syrup for 6 min (low heat). We must watch the cooking of rhubarb to avoid letting them stew. Remove the rhubarb chunks, set aside and allow syrup to cool.
We will now prepare the crisps. Mix ingredients by keeping out only the thyme leaves, until dough is smooth. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place a small amount of batter (1 tbsp) finely and spread in a circle with back of spoon. Bake for about 7 minutes, monitoring the cooking, until the crisps are brown.
Remove crisps from the oven, wait about 1 min. Gently loosen and place on a rolling pin, for example, so they take their curved shape, and cool. One can also roll them into cigar-shaped or cone. Once cooled, they can be kept in a metal box, so they remain crisp.
Wash the strawberries, then hull. It is very important to wash before hulling or cutting! Cut into two (or more depending on size). In a glass, places pieces of rhubarb and strawberry. Add the cooled syrup and filter (using a fine sieve or a coffee filter for example). If you desire sprinkle with a few thyme leaves.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve! (And remember the crisps!)
