I'm willing to cheat a bit for my favorite food, but I'd like some recipes that use sugar alternatives or are lower in sugar if they exist. Could I use honey instead of sugar?
Sent by AllisonEditor: Allison, my personal opinion is that many rhubarb recipes have far too much sugar. I love the tangy taste of rhubarb; why mask it utterly with so much sugar? Of course, it does need sweetener; it's so sour without it! My advice is yes, try honey! The recipe pictured above (and linked below) includes some honey along with the sugar; try making it with just the honey and see how it turns out. Sometimes, depending on how tender and fresh the rhubarb is, I even cut the sugar down by half.
Readers, any thoughts?
