If you want to make your own Chow Chow here is one yummy sounding version. I wanted to find a recipe that had the closest ingredients to the Mild Chow Chow I had bought in WVA. Just in case someone wanted to make it fresh.

I have two recipes that I will post in directions that I use Chow Chow with.

HollyAnn's Stop The Music Deviled Eggs & Hillbilly Hotdogs
