Wow, I haven't made this Southern Chow-Chow in years. I had a neighbor who grew up in the South and he asked me to make him his mother's chow-chow recipe. Being from the North I never hard of it. So I made it and OMG it's so Good! This Southern Chow-Chow recipe is spot on and must have been handed down for centuries. Thank you for reminding me of this great tasting recipe.

This is wonderful on hotdogs or brats ---Yummy!
