Calling all green tomatoes! Roll up roll up for opportunity of a lifetime! Don’t be left to go by the wayside as your vine bows and browns instead be part of the ultimate condiment; a star on sandwiches, magic on meats and an absolute champ with cheese. Chow Chow – but you better do it now now!
Chow Chow is one of my favourite condiments; a rock star pantry staple. Like me I’m sure it will become your ‘go to’ flavour explosion and help you get you through the winter with its golden glow and super tangy flavour. I keep a jar in the fridge at work and it makes such a tasty and inexpensive lunch spread on some crusty bread, topped with cheese and flashed under a hot grill.
This recipe is an adaptation of Bevan Smith’s version from his amazing (and definitely one of my absolute favourites) restaurant, Riverstone Kitchen. The vegetables can be substituted for others such as zucchini or corn, just make sure you end up with roughly the same volume of vegetables in the end. This recipe is incredibly easy to make – perfect if you are new to preserving and it makes lots and lots so there will be plenty to share with friends.
