What Type of Rhubarb Does Rhubarb Apple Pie Use
I use red rhubarb. I find it offers the right flavor next to the apples and spices used in the pie. Red varieties offer a juicy and even tangy and sweet flavor that pairs great with fruits.

When Do You Pick The Best Rhubarb
When picking rhubarb there are some things to look for. Let me share tips to set you up for success on the best rhubarb.
- Firm stalks
- Small leaves indicate baby plants which offer the best taste
- Crisp if broken
- Avoid limp stalks
- Avoid plant if you see split ends or bad spots
Just remember the leaves of rhubarb are toxic. Avoid eating them in any way, and always wash hands food after you come into contact with the leaves.
How to Make Apple Rhubarb Pie
Start by preheating the oven and placing your pie crust in a greased pie pan. Then you want to work on prepping the rhubarb filling. Combine ingredients and then let sit for 15 minutes. Make sure to stir often, and do not skip this step. It will help break down the rhubarb and give it a sweeter and less tangy taste in the pie.
Once that has finished, add in the rest of the ingredients and pour into the pie pan. Top with the other pie crust and seal up the edges. Bake accordingly and then let cool and serve!
Does Apple Rhubarb Pie Need To Be Refrigerated
Technically no. Because this pie does not contain dairy or eggs it can be left on the counter at room temperature for two days. But, if you store it in the refrigerator it will last an additional 2-3 days, extending the shelf life.
Just ensure with either method you cover your pie.
Can I Use Sweetener to Replace Sugar in Rhubarb Pie
I have not used sweetener for this recipe but I don’t see why you couldn’t. Just make sure to follow your sweetener directions on how to properly convert to a recipe. I know some sweeteners require a lot less than regular sugar in a recipe.
Can I Use Homemade Apple Pie Filling vs Canned
Of course! Apple pie filling can be expensive at times. I get wanting to make your own. There are tons of recipes online that show you how easy it is to make!
I reached for canned cause it saves me Prep and I enjoy the taste. But feel free to use anything you want in terms of brands to buy or making homemade.
