I am using alternatives and usually have two slices of bread/toast with my IP omelet, I just ordered from Julian, 0-2 net carbs sounds a lot better per slice than 15 carbs a slice. Does it taste good?

To prepare rhubarb, wash and trim the stems. The pink and white parts at the base of the stem are good, and make a pink color when cooked. For most recipes, rhubarb is chopped in " to " pieces. One pound of rhubarb yields about 3 cups of chopped rhubarb. It is very tart and sweetener is usually needed.

I usually sautee up chopped ~1/2" piece rhubarb for ~5-8 minutes until it is soft & starts getting "mushy" and I add it to my raspberry jelly before putting it in the fridge. Some people sautee up rhubarb and add WF strawberry sauce or a few Splenda packets for a fruit spread for their (crispy cereal or restricted) pancakes. Others sautee up rhubarb with sweetener of choice and top their vanilla pudding. Others top the rhubarb sautee with maple oatmeal or crispy cereal and bake to make a 'crumble'.

Personally, I think it pairs best with either WF Strawberry or Splenda - I tried it with WF Caramel and wasn't a fan of the flavor combo.

Cut up the rhubarb into small pieces and put in baking dish with a little water and microwave till soft. Then stir, drain water, and add splenda and good round cinnamon. Also good with a little vanilla IP pudding on it. YUM!:)

I cut up 2 1/2 stalks boiled them, drained and mixed in the raspberry jelly, then refrigerated it. It kinda end up compote like and I added splenda as I ate it. I think I will add a packet of splenda before I refrigerate it next time. I really liked it!
