I bought some Rhubarb today and I realized Pectin would thicken it up. When I looked at the box it reads no carbs/fat/calories but it is show 1/8 tsp as a serving size. I am thinking I would like to make a stewed Rhubarb. Any suggestions would be welcome.

It is a thickening agent used in jams and jellys. It is made from fruit, but then again miracle noodles are made from yams!
