Who is Mariah?
“Who is Mariah?” Well, this is a question that I get asked all of the time!
“Mariah" is a family name that has been passed down through generations, pictured here is my Great Great Grandmother, Mariah Helen Fleming McSwine Houston. Mariah was born in In 1874, in Scobey MS.
It only felt right to name this family inspired recipe something close to the heart. 💕 The first time I made and canned my own chow chow, I felt a close connection to my grandmother, and remembered my childhood in the South- warm memories of family and food. I began making chow chow as a hobby, so I could share those same memories with family and friends. So remember, always “relish what you eat.” -Phyllis Haynes
