Chow chow, not the dog

singlemalt | Dec 17, 2011 08:05 PM

Years ago, when the world was much larger, my aunt used to make a relish that we dubbed as "chow chow". I have searched for it on Google and have found several recipes, all seeming to involve chopped cabbage, which I don't remember being an ingredient of our 'Chow", but that is beside the point. The pointis that 1) I am lazy and 2) when I was growing up, my mother did not like to cook and, consequently, we ate a lot of "trailer trash" food which sometimes I grow very nostalgic over. Question: do any you know of a commercially available "chow chow" that might approximate the real thing and make a country boy happy. Thanks and happy holidays to all.
