Sunday Recipe Club: Chow-Chow

June 6th, 2010

We cooked today — enough for a couple of dinners and lunches this week and enough for the freezer — lasagna and split pea soup. It was pretty good. Pretty, pretty good, as Larry David would say. For lunch I had a delicious toasted poppyseed bagel with butter, Toby’s Tofu Pate and relish. Relish from a jar. You know what would have been really good with it? Chow-Chow. Homemade.

You use onion, green tomatoes, cucumbers, red bell peppers and grind all that up. I put some vinegar in there and let it cook on the stove for awhile. Then you seal it up in jars. I gave some to my friend Sally – it had been three years and she said it was the best thing she’d ever had. She took some out to her daughter’s.
My kids used to like it with beans.

ps I watched that show “Bridezillas” with my kid yesterday and it was AWFUL. What a scary, scary show that is! Then we couldn’t turn it off, it was like they trapped us. So we ate the rest of the fudge and a big bowl of kettle corn and yeah, that made it worse. The End.

pss my daughter would like me to tell The Internets that I wasn’t going to have any Internet time today, but then I did. The End. Again.

    Oh, do your kids tell you it’s not YOUR TURN, too? “It’s MY turn on the computer, Mum!” Little beasts, it’s MY COMPUTER!!

    Chow Chow in a ham sandwich, OH MY GOD now I’m having cravings. My mother-in-law makes awesome chow chow… it’s yellow and has bits of carrot and stuff in it. Mmmmm….
