Tried Chow Chow for the first time!!! Mrs. Campbell's Chow Chow

I saw this jar of Mrs. Campbell's Chow Chow in the store, I got the sweet version instead of the hot. OM Goodness, it was sooo goood on my hot dogs and hamburgers. It has cabbage, onions and bell peppers and vinegar, spices and sugar.

I was looking at some recipes to try, they had all sorts of vegetables in them. Buying a jar is a lot easier.

The prices ran from $1.56 at Walmart to $2.99 at Harris Teeter for the same size jar. Blue label is sweet and red label is hot.

They have a web site, www.goldingfarms.com with recipes and other products. On the site click on where to buy!!

LOVE chow chow! Never even heard of it 'til I moved here. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

With one who,
Were it proved he lies,
Were neither shamed in his own
Nor in his neighbor's eyes

I will check at Walmart. I remember my great aunt making it in the 50's.

Haven't thought of chow chow in ages. Growing up, my mom always had a dish of it on the table or my dad would complain. He ate it with everything! He only ate the hot kind, though.

Love chow chow especially Mrs. Renfro's. Their salsa's are also fantastico.

I have loved chow-chow as long as I can remember. Years ago, Mom and I made a batch and split it. Our end product turned out delicious, but chopping all those veggies (pre food processor days) was exhausting. I always have both hot and mild in the refrigerator.

I prefer Cross and Blackwell sweet chow chow, or piccalilli as the British
call it.
It's hard to find now, but they've been making it for hundreds of years .
It's especially good with beef stew..
If you have a Wegman's near you, that's where I get it..

Thanks. I'll look for that at Wegmans. I've never heard of this before.

You're most welcome. It's in the imported section as it's made in the UK.
We had it when I was a child, so I grew up on it and I'm OLD now!
