You may know it as one of two ingredients in a strawberry rhubarb pie. But the tangy stalk yields many more goodies, if you can handle its strong flavor. Montezuma Winery & Hidden Marsh Distillery will help celebrate the rhubarb harvest with an Old-Tyme Rhubarb Festival and Classic Car Cruisein, Saturday, June 4, noon to 4 p.m. There will be rhubarb pie, but let your taste buds sample the rhubarb crisp, rhubarb chili and even rhubarb wine sorbet.
If you'd rather play with your food, try the rhubarb stalk throw. Music will be provided by The Acoustic Movers and you can sample wines and other foods as well. Admission is free. The winery is located at 2981 Auburn Road (where routes 5/20 and 89 meet) in Seneca Falls. For more information, call 568- 8190 or visit www.montezumawinery.com.
