"Let's face it - English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig." -Richard Lederer

The refrigerator light goes on...

Chow Chow is a pickled dish familiar to any Southerner. It can be made with almost any vegetable and has a sweet, tangy, spicy flavor. This dish is meant to mimic those flavors and they are nicely balanced by the savory flavor of the roasted eggplant.
