Why I Love This Recipe

Growing up, every year we'd make loads of Chow-Chow. Used on beans, hot dogs, black eyed peas and lots of other things.


Ingredients You'll Need

4 quarts green tomatoes
1 large head of cabbage
10 medium onions
5 medium green peppers
7 medium sweet red peppers
1/2 cup salt
15 cups vinegar
5 cups sugar
3 tablespoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons powdered ginger
1 tablespoon turmeric
4 tablespoons mustard seeds
3 tablespoons celery seed
2 tablespoons pickling spice


Directions

Chop all vegetables or grind; combine in a large kettle. Stir in salt; let stand at room temperature overnight, or at least 8 hours. Drain.


Combine vinegar, sugar, dry mustard, ginger, and turmeric in a large kettle. Put mustard seed, celery seed, and pickling spices in a 6-inch square of cheesecloth or cheesecloth bag. Tie ends or gather and tie string and add to the kettle. Bring the liquid to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Add vegetables and return to simmer for 30 minutes longer. Discard spice bag. Spoon chow-chow into hot sterilized jars and seal.


Process for 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner
