The rain didn’t stop the 2018 Blacksmith Collective at Storrowton Village Museum on Saturday, May 12. We have visitors from as far away as Brooklyn, New York! Below is a short video from the event. We’re already looking forward to next year!

Don’t forget to like Storrowton Village on Facebook to get updates about upcoming events this summer and fall. See you at Opening Day on June 16 and our Garden Party on June 21.

Summer Recipes: Rhubarb Relish

Warmer temperatures are here and that means rhubarb is once more sending its stalks up from old garden beds. You might be familiar with strawberry rhubarb pie and tarts but what else can you do with the fruit of the “pie plant?”

Below is one option that makes about 4 pints and is perfect for mason jar gift giving. This relish can be used alongside meat dishes and even as a barbecue sauce!

Ingredients:
4 cups diced rhubarb
2 cups apple cider vinegar
4 cups chopped onions
2 lbs. brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves

Instructions:
Cook rhubarb and vinegar in a large saucepan for 20 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 45 minutes or until desired thickness is reached.
