How to Make Chow Chow Old Fashioned Relish Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the chopped vegetables in a large nonreactive kettle or bowl.
  2. Add the salt and stir to combine thoroughly. Cover and let stand for 4 hours or refrigerate overnight.
  3. Drain the vegetables and rinse thoroughly.
  4. In a large nonreactive stockpot bring the vinegar, brown sugar, and seeds and spices to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to medium low and continue simmering for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the drained vegetables and bring back to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  8. With a slotted spoon, pack the vegetables into prepared jars. Cover vegetables with the pickling liquid, leaving about 1/4-inch headspace. With a clean dampened cloth, wipe the rims of the jars. Place the flat lids on the jars then close caps with screw-on rings tightly, but do not over-tighten. Arrange the filled jars in the canner and add more water, as needed, to be at least 1 inch above the jars. Bring to a full boil. Cover and continue boiling for 10 minutes. Remove the relish to a rack to cool completely.
