It’s a kind of pickle relish. Lots of versions out there. Some made with green tomatoes or cabbage as the base vegetable. In the south it’s usually sweet. Served on hot dogs, hamburgers or beans. Or whatever you would use pickle relish on or in. It reminds me of grandma.What is chow chow?
Fried potatoes and hot dogs were a treat when I was a kid. We still have them several times a year. My father told me that when he was a kid they would have potato peal soup, and the peels did not have much potato. The soup was made with potato water and a piece of speck.I made fried potatoes and hotdogs not long ago

Chow-chow (food) - Wikipedia
My childhood. Exactly. I will never forget.Meat was a priveledge. only once and a while, we always ate good, just not expensive.
I do remember boning out pork shoulders at like under .50 cents lb. and then hand grinding it, making broth from the bones and hand cranking kielbasi and italian sausages. Ha, casing could find in any store, now good luck.
so kielbasi and cabbage, tomato from garden , made sauce for spagetti and sausage when we could afford it.
everything was stretched.
Being polish, made stuffed cabbage, added a lot of rice to stretched the burger
Pierogis, some cheese some potato..
Cabbage soup , add smoked pork hock, head of household had the hock, rest had soup
of course chicken soup
Lard on toast
everything was home made. nothing frozen,
zuchini bread, real cheap desert.
Hell we made our own soap with leftover fat.
I still have some old cook books and pressure cooking cook books to preserve foods,, most ppl wont touch
whats in there in todays world.
CHicken caccitore(sp) , from carcases made soup . cut up chicken for the meal.
Ratatouille,, tomatoes zuchini , eggplant. sauce
egg plant parmesian, to cut out meat..
Canned stuff, I would find apple trees, pear trees, peach trees that were underpicked. Got the leftover for free,
canned applesauce, pears, peaches,
There are lots of cuts and lots of ways to stretch food if one has to.
Ah. Sounds like a "Jam Sandwich".Have you ever heard of a wish sandwich? A wish sandwich is the kind of a
sandwich where you have two slices of bread and you, hee hee hee, wish you
had some meat...
