Old Fashioned Rhubarb Torte, THM S, Keto, Sugar-free, Gluten Free, Low Carb

Bright red rhubarb stalks are one of the first vegetables to be harvested in gardens. These crisp stalks need added sweetner to offset the tartess but make the best pies and desserts.

Rhubarb is widely grown and greenhouse production is available all year around. I prefer the bright red stalks of rhubarb as they are the sweetest. Rhubarb was widely cultivated in Europe before the 18th century and used for medical purposes.

The crust has been pressed into the pan. The tart is now ready to go into the oven to bake the first layer.

Here is the rhubarb layer beginning to bake. As you can seem most of my rhubarb is the bright red kind.

The egg whites have been beaten stiff, sweetened, and are ready to be baked. I am going to spread them out to the edge of the tart pan.

This torte is delicious and light. Not as heavy as some desserts can be. It is a great dish that heralds the arrival of spring.
