Texas Chow Chow is a southern style relish that compliments a variety of foods. Easy to make and with minimal cooking time, you'll be sure to want this


  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Large Green Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Head Napa Cabbage
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Large Carrot
  • 2 Jalapeños
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seed
  • 1/2 tsp Dry Mustard Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Celery Seed
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric


  1. Place the liquids and all the spices in a non-reactive pan and bring to a simmer.
  2. Chop all the vegetables to a uniform size and add to pot.
  3. Deseed and mince Jalapeños and add to pot as well.
  4. A food processor makes shredding the vegetables a lot easier - leave some chunks for texture.
  5. Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are softened.
  6. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  7. Store in the fridge.


Chow Chow is a great condiment to add to Pinto Beans.
