Chow-chow was brought to Trinidad by the English who learned how to make it from the Dutch. In sections of the United States, as in Trinidad, “chow” refers to a pickled fruit or vegetable mixture that is very spicy. You can decide which vegetables you’d like to use but this is a fairly standard recipe. Trinidadians eat chow-chow as a snack but I like to use it as a condiment with grilled foods.
