CHOW CHOW (NORTH AMERICAN PICKLED RELISH)

I have been looking for a Chow Chow recipe for a long time and I found this one on Facebook. I am looking forward to trying it.
What is Chow-Chow Relish? The short answer is “good”. Chow-Chow Relish has long been a favorite on pinto beans in the South and its appeal is even broader when you consider hot dogs, hamburgers, black-eyed peas and its use on various greens such as turnip greens and collards.

In some versions, many of the ingredients are meant to come out crunchy, with distinguishable, chunky individual ingredients. Other versions have a softer texture, with the ingredients more “melted” into one another.

Typical ingredients drawn on by chow-chow recipes can include beans, bell peppers (red or green), cabbage, carrots, cucumber, corn kernels, cauliflower, onions, tomatoes (green and red), peas, etc.

The use of cabbage is more common in some parts of the southern US than it is in other parts of the US or of the world. In the American south, the primary base ingredients usually found are cabbage, onion, tomato and peppers.
