RHUBY TUESDAY'S Rhubarb Rhelish

The Rhubarb season is quickly coming to an end - sigh!  Does anyone out there know how to slow down the seasons???  Time is flying by so quickly - maybe it's my old age causing this phenomenon?

Well, seems like this is the last chance to preserve some of that Rhubarb goodness in the form of relish.  This relish tastes amazing on pork sausage and "dresses up" the simplest Canada Day hot dog!

We have made this "rhelish" for our annual Rhubarb and Rhummage "RhuBBQ".  I know that's a lot of H's and spell check is doing a lot of red underlining, but it's such fun!

Give this relish a try - your taste buds will thank you!

Rhubarb Relish

8 Cups diced Rhubarb
4 Cups chopped onion
3 Cups white vinegar
1 Tbsp. salt
2 lbs. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground allspice
½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. dry mustard
½ tsp. celery salt
Combine all ingredients in a large kettle and boil gently, uncovered, for 1 to 1 ½ hours or until fairly thick, stirring occasionally.  Read your latest magazine while you are hovering over it.  Taste and add extra sugar, vinegar or salt if needed.  Spoon into hot sterilized small jars and seal.  This makes approx. 6 Cups.

Till next time ...... remember that Summer's song sings itself!  Can you tell that I love summer?


  1. I cant wait to make these! They sound sooo good.

  2. Rhubarb relish is new to me - but it sounds delicious!

  3. Wow, I never would have thought to make rhubarb relish, but I'd love it on my next hot dog :)

  4. Are you still working? How can you when you are so busy cooking...Looks like some great recipes...So you are the Rumpkoph gal...so funny. I've never heard of that before...but I could use a stiff swig by now. My company has all left and I'm just taking some down time to catch up on my blogging friends.
    Looks like a fun wedding. Isn't it interesting to see how much we love our children's friends. They become like family.
    Hope all is well with you.

    1. Hi Marg - I sent you a message on your last post! So good to hear from you!!!!


Summer in Full Swing!

It's official! Summer has arrived in SW Ontario. It has been sweltering hot, the Spring flowers have bloomed and are long gone. ...
