Sugar Free Stewed Rhubarb

Jo Zimny


I don't eat white sugar so substituted Erythritol for the sugar. Erythritol is an all natural sweetener made from plants. 1 cup of Erythritol equals 2/3 cups of sugar. I found this was fine in this recipe. The rhubarb isn't sweet but it's no longer tart either.

How to Make Sugar Free Stewed Rhubarb


  1. Wash and clean the rhubarb.
  2. Cut the rhubarb into 1" pieces.
  3. Add the rhubarb to a medium saucespan and turn on the heat to medium high. Add the water.
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the sweetener and the pinch of salt.
  6. Stir it for a few minutes. When you feel the rhubarb is soft enough for your tastes take off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes.
  7. You can store this in a glass canning jar in the fridge. It goes good with ice cream, custard or on toast which is my favourite.
  8. Enjoy!
