    I friend gave me a jar of old-fashioned ‘Chow Chow’ that she canned recently. I have never pickled when I can because I do not like pickles, but this jar of chow chow has shown me the error in my ways, it is delicious. Chow chow is a pickled vegetable recipe and everyone that makes it seems to have a different recipe for it that has been handed down through generations of their family. The one my friend made was from her grandmother and it included a mix of finely chopped cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, green tomatoes and a touch of jalepeno peppers. It as also a ‘sweet & sour’ variation that included sugar as well as vinegar in the brine.
