Chow Chow #3

Our third and final (for now) recipe for Chow Chow. This one calls for tomatoes, onions, celery, mango peppers (aka bell peppers), cabbage and cauliflower. I’m guessing either this person had a prodigious back garden, or she just loved to can. It may have been “the thing” she was known for, or her family relied … Continue reading

Zucchini Relish

This is clearly a summer canning recipe for pickled zucchini relish. It might be good, although I haven’t tried it myself. You will need a large crock or other type of container to hold the relish as you are making it. It also will need to be properly canned, and while it doesn’t indicate the … Continue reading

The “impossible” dishes arose … Continue reading
