Very good equal balance of flavors, not a lingering heat. This is kind of like an end of the garden mixed pickle relish. Add whatever's left, except cucumbers, I've never had luck adding those. You can add or subtract what you will as long as cabbage predominant. It's good as a side relish for many things, hot dogs, fried potatoes, you can eat 'em eggs, eat 'em with gravy, eat 'em with beans, pinto or navy. I've seen this called chow chow, mixed pickles, Piccalilli, chutney. The name chow chow comes from the French word Chou, for cabbage. Call it whatever you will, just make some and enjoy!!!
