Anyone have any tried and true recipes for chow chow? I remember grandparents canning it as a child, but those recipes are gone now.
 
I tried googling and initially got pictures of the dog breed Chow Chow.
I can't help you, but in the meantime I did find this;

Hey! Thanks for trying for me. I've been looking online and found "appalachian chow chow" This is gotta be close to how they used to make it. It's like a relish. People here eat it with soup beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread. Mmm mmmmm!

I'm going to try make this recipe this year!

Ingredients​

  • 12 medium onions 4 cups
  • 1 medium head of cabbage 4 cups
  • 10 green tomatoes 4 cups
  • 12 green bell peppers
  • 6 sweet red bell peppers
  • ½ cup coarse salt
  • 6 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 T mustard seed
  • 1 T celery seed
  • 1 ½ tsp. turmeric
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups water

Instructions​

  • Chop vegetables finely using food processor or grinder. Place chopped vegetables in porcelain or glass container; sprinkle with the salt; cover and let stand overnight.
  • Place vegetables in large colander and rinse very well under cold running water. (divide into smaller batches if necessary)
  • Drain thoroughly and place in large stockpot. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chopped vegetables. Heat to boiling and then boil 4 minutes. Ladle into clean pint jars which have been sterilized in boiling water. Seal with sterilized lids according to manufacturers instructions. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
  • Makes approx. 8 pints.
