Did you make the chow chow, candle?  My dad loved the stuff. 

 

Actually, my MIL sent a homemade jar over last night, HC.  Joe loves it, too.  I haven't ventured down that route, yet.  If you need the recipe, I can get it for you, though.

My mom makes it a lot.  Or at least, she did when my dad was alive.  She learned how when she lived in WV.  :biggrin:

 

I wouldn't mind the recipe!  There are a number of ways to make it.  I know my hubby likes it, but I've never made it.

 

My FIL's mother taught her how to make it.  She was originally from PA.  It seems like PA and WV have a lot in common.  :)

I will ask her for her recipe tonight after church.  She usually just rattles things off the top of her head.  However, I will ask her to write it down.  I should learn how to make it, as well.

NO MORE HOMEWORK, NO MORE BOOKS, NO MORE TEACHERS DIRTY LOOKS!  I just finished the last of my finals and its summer break!  In honor of the kid in me that still gets excited about summer break from school, I will be having a kids meal of Corndogs and Tater Tots tonight with a 7-11 Slurpee to drink with it.

A chow chow is a breed of dog..... :lol:

 

Perhaps they are cooking the dog?  Korean recipe perhaps?

 

But seriously, I did not know what chow chow was, so I asked Mr Google and it seems there is a recipe as here http://www.tarladalal.com/Vegetable-Chow-Chow-4139r and also a type of squash

Hey, now, I like dog meat. I have a d-i-l that doesn't (I think it's just that they don't know how to fix it in Siberia)

Actually it is Chow Chow - but sometimes shortened to one. ;)
A friend had one - blue tongue......

 
Really?  Once again the USA has botched another name.   :D  Thanks for the correction, Dave.

We had a lab that was part Chow. Or Chow Chow.  hehe.

 

As to the edible chow chow, it is a relish which, depending on the recipe, uses a variety of veggies in it. It can be sweet, sour, mild, or spicy, depending on the tastes of the maker and eaters.  It can be red relish (red peppers/tomatoes...) or green (zucchini, green pepper, etc).  I've seen yellow chow chow (prOBably made from summer squash).  I'm not partial to it, but then - I'm not really fond of much relish.  Give me mayo, mustard, and in some cases ketchup and I am content.  :biggrin:

 

Salad last night was delicious - and we had ice cream for dessert.  Cherry Bordeaux Chocolate. Num, num!

 

Tonight it's hot dogs (and, no, no dogs will be harmed in the eating of them  :nuts: )

Sounds like a beautiful mix of a dog, HC.  Well, my MIL called me back.  This is quite an extensive recipe.  I have seen her make it, labor over it before, so that is why I have passed in making it.  Buying it in the store is a lot less work.  :)  Anyway, here goes:

How to Make Chow Chow:

It is best made in the Fall b/c of the green tomatoes.

 

You need:

1 large onion
A bunch of celery
A peck or a basket of green tomatoes
1 head of cauliflower
1 red pepper

1 head of cabbage

 

It will make 12 jars.  Since it is just you and your hubby, she said you might want to cut the recipe into a 1/4.

How to Make the Brine:

It will make 12 quarts.  You need:

4 cups of sugar.
2 quarts of vinegar.  Of course you know that vinegar is great for keeping gall stones away b/c it cancels out the calcium in one's body.  Rarely will you find a Hungarian with gall stones.  Believe me, my husband's family loves vinegar.  LOL
You will need 1 1/2 quarts of vinegar if you are using less vegetables.  That will give you 14-15 quarts.

Kosher salt.

4 Tablespoons of pickling spice.
It will take you all day to cut up the vegetables.  She said a food processor will be just as good and much faster.

Take the vegetables and put into a big pan, put a handful of kosher salt and mix by hand or with a wooden spoon.  Cover it, and leave in a place in your house where no one can smell it, b/c before it is cooked, b/c it doesn't smell that great.

The next day, squeeze the water out of the vegetables.  Put in a pot.  Boil the Brine, and stir so the sugar dissolves.  Pickle and spice will make it smell good.

Stir and boil.  Cook for 20 minutes.  Put into canning jars.  Put the Brine to the lip of the jar.  Take a silver knife, and go around the jar to get the air out.  She boils the rubber lids in a pot of water.  Take them out with tonges, one buy one.  Leave a bit of space in the canning jar, and put your finger on the warm lid and twist it.  Put warm jars on a clean towel.  Leave them out for 24 hours.  You will hear or see them pop.  Store jars in basement for future use.

Thanks - that sounds like a relish I could - ahem - relish.  :icon_smile:

 

Yes, it is quite tasty LuAnne.  It actually has a sweet taste to it.  And, no relish.  ;)  BTW, you might want to make the whole recipe in the future, b/c you can store the jars, and they will last quite awhile.

Yes, that is what I was thinking. My Dad could go through a jar of it in just a few meals - I know my hubby would love it.  He wouldn't eat it quite as much as my Dad, but I'm sure that one batch would likely last us about a year.

It WOULD last you about a year.  Joe would polish them off in a month, so I would be making Chow Chow all the time.  LOL

Chicken salad for lunch.

 

 Vegetables for supper.  Potatoes and asparagus in Hollandaise sauce, Brussels sprouts, new carrots, fried mushrooms with onion and tomatoes.  Yummy.  I was intending to have salmon with it but forgot to get it out of the freezer.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
