How do you sweeten Rhubarb.?

27 posts in this topic

:ninja::rofl: Can anybody tell me how to sweeten Rhubarb without using sugar.

All that sugar cant be good for you.

Is honey any good? I don't really want to use a artificial sweetener i heard there's a lot of bad shit in that too. :B):

Any ideas?

I don't know, maybe Cook the rhubarb with a couple of tablespoons of water and serve it with some other sweet fruit and a spoon of honey on top or maybe stew the rhubarb with pre soaked golden sultanas.

You can add a little salt, although if you are worried about health this is not maybe the best option... salt suppresses the tongue picking up some of the bitter flavours so it can taste more of the sweet flavours apparantly

honey works well with rhubarb , as does ginger. My other half uses that preserved ginger when making rhubarb crumbles - bloody lovely.

dont nowif it helps with the sweetness but you can reduce the acidity with chalk,precipitated chalk should be avaliable from any decent wine maker suppliers.

sugar is your best bet, seeing as most folk rarely eat rhubarb one large helping of sugar isn't going to do you any harm, maybe eat healthy food for the rest of the week or a long walk to burn in off.

everything in moderation when it comes to food, forget sweeteners and substitutes as they are likely to be worse than sugar. like somebody said before brown sugar is better for you than white.
