Eddie's notes for this recipe:
I used to help my grandma fix this chow chow. When I made this chow chow it was as close to Grandma's that I could get and it did taste great also.

How long should it be processed? And should it be in a boiling water canner or a pressure canner. I am very excited about this recipe I have been looking for a good Chow Chow recipe for a while!

I was given this recipe by someone about the age of Mr. Jordan's grandmother. It is not "processed" in a boiling water or pressure canner. It is an open kettle hot pack. Meaning, when you fill the jar and place the lid and ring on and tighten it, you set it aside to cool. You are finished with that jar and on to the next one. All the ingredients have been cooked previously during the cook time. When you hear it 'pop', it has sealed. Love this recipe, and it make A LOT!

Ann thank you! I do a little canning and but I have never done an open kettle hot pack. Thanks for the info.. can't wait to try it!

Plan on trying this next year... sounds good... though I think a 10 minute boiling bath wouldn't hurt...
