Call it serendipity… I was going through my list of local food traditions, trying to decide which one to post about next, when I saw a discussion on our message boards about another regional favorite – chow chow. (And they gave a shoutout to my Farmers’ Market, yay!)
You can tell it’s mostly a local favorite, because if you search for Chow Chow, chowchow or chow-chow, you get a very cute dog. And, while they’re cute, they don’t exactly look like a relish made from a mixture of pickled vegetables to me.
No, I meant this kind of chow-chow.
Anyone eat it? What do you think? I’ve only had it a couple of times… what sticks out to me is how sour it is.
