"The term 'chow-chow' is reportedly based on the French word chou for cabbage. A further possible source of the name is the ingredient chayote, which is itself known as chow chow in India. The name is sometimes used interchangeably with piccalilli."

I would like to make some jars of mixed vegetable pickle - the sort with vinegar and whole spices added to the mix and the veg still crunchy. I've had no luck trawling the internet for recipes so far. Has anyone got a nice, tried and true recipe please?
