Thanks for this recipe. I had an abundance of green tomatoes at the end of this season, and since I don't like to waste, I came looking for something to do with them. I was pleasantly surprised. My family loves this recipe. My only question is, why is it suggested that the spices and sugar be put in a cheesecloth. It just melts away into the boiling tomatoes, and leaves a messy cloth to clean up. My guess is that the cheesecloth catches the chunks of clove etc. Am I right?

In the south, it's traditionally eaten with beans and cornbread. The addition of turmeric adds a prime note, too.

Chow Chow has cabbage as the main ingredient. I dont see any cabbage here. This is tomato relish.
