Ask me a question. No not really.

I got some rhubarbs and by JR's request I went on a quest to make it without adding sugar. Found a recipe by coincidence in the local paper this morning so I went with that. As far as the topping goes, not the crust which is my to go grain free pie crust:

Thought since it's rhubarbs with no sugar added I could add a sweet layer, such as this:

Salted Raw Caramel Dip:

The rhubarbs (2) I washed and sliced and boiled in a minuscule amount of water until mashable. Then added fresh crushed strawberries (7 big ones), vanilla extract and a Tbsp of Greek pine honey, 1 Tbsp of Psyllium and 1 Tbsp of Chia seeds.

Bake pie crust, let all of it cool. Spread salted caramel layer, jam on top. Cover and put in fridge to cool and set.

That's where we're at atm time.gif

I have to say that salted raw caramel dip was so delicious I had to slap myself not to eat it before it went on the pie. Omg y'all need to make that! I didn't get almond milk so I used cream. I also didn't have access to medjool dates, but got these incredibly fresh and deliciously buttery Iranian dates so use whatever dates you have. I'd go with soaking them in water if not very fresh as the recipe recommends.

Serious recommends on this ^^

Ffs, you can use any or ALL sweeteners you want. I have several different honeys, but this newest Greek pine honey was given to me by my mother just the other day and I wanted to open it and taste it and this pie was a perfect excuse to do that

Does the salted caramel contain sugar?

Only the sugar contained in the dates. No added sugar. Actually I added salt.

That's interesting. In the old days, refined sugar was unheard of.

I'm curious.
This looks delicious but at the end of the day, would you categorize this dessert as being more savory / sour or sweet?
I know that the rhubarb here is extremely tart and I need to add quite a bit of sugar along with either Himalayan black berries, Thimbleberries or strawberries.

Rhubarb is extremely tart here as well. I haven't ever tried or made a rhubarb strawberry pie before. And I haven't tasted it yet! It may taste like hell! But then I'm definitely making another pie with the salty caramel and some chocolate stuff on top... drool.gif
