We grew a TON of tomatoes this last season. There were still blooms on the plants in November when we got our first frost. But Andy was on top of things and ran outside and plucked off all the remaining tomatoes so they wouldn't be ruined. We ended up with what seemed like an overwhelming amount of tomatoes, mostly green but some good red ones too. We decided to make Chow Chow with them. For those who don't know, it is a green tomato relish made with the final harvest vegetables, and is very popular here in Tennessee. It is most commonly used to season pinto beans or white beans, which are also very popular in the South. They are cooked with ham and everyone down here just loves them. Take a big spoonful of chow chow and put it on top of your bowl full of beans before you eat them. Since I tried my first chow chow, I can't eat beans without it. We had no idea how to make it so we pulled about a dozen recipes off the internet and just used them as a guide, incorporating our favorite aspects of each recipe into our own Chow Chow. Neither one of us had ever canned on our own before, so it was a really big deal to us! We are quite proud of our finished product. We ended up with a lot of it and gave it out as Christmas gifts to a lot of our friends.
