Here is the recipe for Chow Chow that I finally remembered to track down and put into my computer. Your house will smell so good while this cooks.

Enjoy!!

Chow Chow

11 cups cabbage, chopped or graded
11 cups cucumber, chopped or graded
11 cups green tomato, chopped
6 cups onions, chopped

1/4 cup salt
5 cups vinegar
1 tbsp mustard seed
8 cups sugar
2 tbsp pickling spice
1 tbsp celery seed
4 tsp tumeric

Mix salt, sugar, vinegar and spices and bring to simmer. Let stand
while preparing vegetables.
Combine grated cucumbers and tomatoes;let drain. Prepare cabbage and
onions and combine all ingredients in a heavy kettle. Boil 15 or 20
minutes, stirring occasionally. Place in hot sterilized jars and seal.
Makes 18 pints.
I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure if you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Thank you, thank you! This is the one I have been waiting for- but what if I want to make it hot. What do I add? Pepper, I know, but which kind? huh.gif
It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it.

I think the addition of 1 to 2 cups of chopped jalapeno peppers would do the trick if you want heat, possibly some chopped cayenne too.

Maybe even the addition of some tobasco sauce during the final minutes cooking. Experiment!

I will look for one with more heat but this is my favorite chow chow recipe. Hot things burn my little mouth. sad.gif blink.gif

Thanks, I'm going to scale this down a bit and try to make a smaller batch. I just love chow-chow with black-eyed peas.

The only other time I get to eat chow-chow is at the Chinese restaurant in the Kroger plaza.


That' a joke, people! wink.gif wink.gif wink.gif
