I'm a winner

 

As I was scrolling through Facebook this week, I came across a recipe for Hot Chow Chow Party Dip. That made me think of all the chow chow I have eaten in my life. Many of my aunts made it every year and I remember tales of hands being irritated from all the hot pepper they chopped up. Usually when they came to visit us in Florida or we visited them in North Carolina, someone would share a couple of jars of their latest batch. So, needless to say, I will be trying out this recipe but I won’t have any homemade chow chow to use. If you still make homemade chow chow, I would love to read your recipe!

    I always love your blogs. I’m completely unfamiliar with chow-chow, it must be a southern thing. You advertisement on this was Oil free grafruit acne cleanser from neutrogena.

    I never had the nerve to try it, but I remember Grandma always had a jar of it on the table. Maybe if you learn how to make it I will give it a taste.
