When I was young it was a yearly sight to watch my grandmother grow veggies in her garden and then make this wonderfully fragrant relish. I never appreciated it's goodness until I got older. It is delicious served beside a big pot of pinto beans, fried potatoes and cornbread. I wish I still had my precious granny. She surely is making chow chow for the angels..LOL
