It is getting closer to the lazy days of summer, but for now we are still contending with May showers spilling into June. As I was setting up for the large charity tennis tournament our firm co-hosted on Sunday, I imagined lords and ladies gathering on grand grass courts on lovely country estates like Downton as part of their own charity garden party (S1). Tennis is such a timeless sport.
As you may know, Tea Tuesday is a weekly tradition I started, dishing about Downton Abbey, featuring a new “Downton” era recipe. Refer to my Online Guide to Afternoon Tea, helpful in understanding traditions and recipes to help you host your own tea party with family and friends.
Since my garden is still oveflowing with fresh rhubarb, today’s treat is Rhubarb Blueberry gems (muffins). As you may recall from earlier posts, gems were the little pans that little cakes were baked in.
