it was actually my dad that made up the chow chow ... I will check with my brother to see if he by chance has that old recipe. There were several cookbooks that my dad had where he made comments in the margins on tweaks to certain recipes ... those somehow got overlooked and sold during an estate sale upon my mother's passing wife ... the one that really kills me is a homemade sausage recipe book that I bought my dad for father's day back in the mid 1970s, that had all his notes on all the various sausages we used to make up through the early 2000s. literally 3-4 decades of notes on things to change to get it to our likings.

How do they compare to fried yellow squash? Love it, just not a big tomato fan...

I make a few pints of chow-chow every year. It's really easy with the food choppers. I add a little zip to mine with a jalapeño per pint. You simply chop up your selected vegetables, cover them with vinegar in a pot and bring to a boil, dip it into pint jars with a slotted spoon, and seal. All the jars will click. Never had one to fail.

Haven't had fried yellow squash in years. Prefer it stir fried, with onions, bell peppers, and salsa.

one thing from personal experience:
if anyone plans on using grandma's or mama's or whoever's recipes,
look 'em over while they're still with us and ask any questions that
may need asking and copy them down for your own records. quite a
few of my mother's and grandmother's recipes have gaps in ingredient
lists and quantities and procedures and temperatures. i've asked my
mother about quite a few these the last few years and it's stuff she just
knew off the top of her head and didn't bother to write it down with
the other info. she already knew it, so she didn't think any more of it.

yep, I made it a special point of spending time with my mother in the kitchen during her last few years to get certain recipes from her. I actually spent mid morning to mid afternoon between hunts helping make jelly and jam with her about a month before she passed. I wrote down all her comments and instructions as it was all in her head she had done it so many times (she was 94).
