Old Fashioned Chow Chow


Old Fashioned Chow Chow

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.


1 small cabbage, chopped

6 to 8 green or red tomatoes, chopped

6 medium bell peppers, chopped

6 large onions, chopped

2 hot peppers, chopped

3 cups of sugar

5 cups white vinegar

1/4 cup salt or pickling salt


Put all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until desired tenderness is achieved.

This recipe is designed to be put in pint jars and sealed.

Makes 8 to 9 pints. But you could cut the recipe down to use for one night of dinner.

And Enjoy…!
