This is a wonderful way to use up all the leftover summer vegetables from your garden.
My former mother in law gave me a recipe for chow chow in the early 70's. I've added a few ingredients and this is what I canned this week with my leftover summer veggies.
Great on hotdogs or vegetables. I will be serving on white beans this week.
Also good on top of crackers spread with cream cheese.
