If you're like me, you have lots of green tomatoes reddening (and rotting) on your basement floor. I post here a delicious green tomato recipe from my dear neighbour Trish. She shares a wee bit of the heart of Nova Scotia with us...
Chow, chow! I just like saying the word, even typing it is fun. chow, chow. chow, chow. meow meow.
This is a Nova Scotia Chow Chow recipe.
To be used on hunks of dry meat or to sweeten up a dull meal.
Delicious any time of year.
Best to can.
- 16 cups finely sliced green tomatoes
- 8 cups sliced onions
2. Sprinkle well with salt (preferably sea salt) and let sit overnight. Mmm..salty juices.
4. Put drained tomatoes and onions in a large pot, add:
- 3 cups of vinegar,
- 4 to 5 cups of sugar (depending on how sweet you want your chow chow)
- 1/2 cup of pickling spices (in a cheesecloth bag)
5. Cook, stirring often until soft and thick.
Makes six whopping pints.
