    Nat Da Brat's Note:

    This is a traditional ketchup from quebec. It's delicious served with meats, but we especially like it with Tortiere. Sometimes fruit (apple or peaches- grated) were added, and that would be added to the saucepan before boiling.

      Actually a green tomato chow chow not exclusive to Quebec, but served throughout French Canada. Excellent on tourtiere (French Canadian Meat Pie) also with French Canadian Pork and Beans and Hamburgers.
