Chow chow is a Southern relish, good with meats, barbecue, pinto beans, corn bread, and everything else.

1. In a large bowl, pour salt/sugar/chili flakes over the chopped cabbage. Squeeze the mixture, bruising cabbage, 5-8 minutes, until juices start to exude.

2. In a larger bowl, layer all the ingredients, and slowly mix by hand to blend them.

3. Fill 4 pint jars to the top with mixture (might have some leftover), and press down with a pestle or other tool. "Stomp" them all down, then add remaining ingredients.

4. Make sure brine covers mixture in jars. Cover tightly and let sit at room temperature for 1-2 weeks.
