DirectionsPut first 5 ingredients ( if using hot pepper) or first 4 ingredients if not using hot pepper, in a food processor and grind. put in a bowl with 3 Tablespoons salt and let stand 10 minutes. While this is standing, in a pot mix in the vinegar, sugar, celery seeds, mustard seeds and turmeric and boil 5 minutes.Then by hand squeeze out as much liquid as you can from the veggies and put in a pot, and pour the vinegar mixture over top and stir well. Bring to almost a boil, to heat mixture thoroughly.Have sterilized jars, rings and lids ready. Put chow chow in the jars, I use a plastic knife to run down the inside of the jars before sealing and make sure that the rim has been wiped off before adding the lid and ring. Leave about 1 inch head space in the jar. Process for 15 minutes in hot water bath (pint jars) and 25 minutes for quart jars. Enjoy, this has been a family favorite for many, many years. People tell me that it is also good to eat with beans, but i wouldn't know about that, I don't eat beans at all!
