Exparement is now in the oven. Time will tell how it turns out. Cross your fingers. And to get the full story with this Splenda I even put a crumb toping on it.

From what I have heard about splenda , it would give new meaning to a cake my grandmother use to make, called pie plant grunt. If you ate enough ,it was a great spring tonic . Cleaned ya right out.

Let us know how it comes out. I tried a few recipes with the Splenda, with mixed results. I think some experimentation would improve my results too.
Hard to beat a piece of warm Rhubarb pie with a scoop of ice cream on top :)

My family and I love Rhubarb, infact it's time to go cut some from my mom's patch since she doesn't use it anymore. But if you think it's sour, you should try gooseberry, a local favorite here.

Sugarless uh uh. But I like rubarb particularly if it is combined with something else--aplebarb, blueberrybarb, peaches etc.
