Drain vegetables well and set aside. Mix vinegar with remaining ingredients in a very large enamel or stainless steel kettle and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.

Re: Chow Chow Recipe

Well sounds mighty tasty. I do similar raw ingredients cept I aint neva seen anybody put collie flower in chow chow. Where you from Boy?. Not sure it would pass muster on safe canning practices. Why not follow the rules and do your boiling in the jars? As acidic as the product bound to be 10 mins under two inches of water with a lid would be good. That allow you to enter it at the County Fair and hopefully not kill any folks etc. I aint neva brined any veggies. Whuts up with that? Thanks.

Re: Chow Chow Recipe

I use a variant of this one cept I usually toss in a couple of raw japs and have tried different vinegars. My current favorite vinegar combo is half raw organic apple cider vinegar and half white vinegar. I always do a 10 min boiling water bath once it has been jarred up. Notice the recipe doesnt call for it but thats the way I was taught to do.
