Chow-chow is a chunky, pickled vegetable relish, full of things like corn, beans, and chopped peppers. Passadumkeg recommends Wos-Wit brand chow-chow, made on a farm in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania. “I love all their products, have cases of ’em in the cellar,” says Passadumkeg. “Pretty authentic Pennsylvania Dutch stuff, especially for a family named Secovich!” ChrisOC likes the chow-chow made by Kettle Kitchen Village.
Chow-chow is a fixture of Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine, but it’s been spotted by Chowhounds as far afield as Houston. “I had it on pasties from Michigan,” says choctastic. “I liked the chow-chow better than the pasties, by far.”
