      I did not know there were Mennonites in Virginia. 🤔 Also they mentioned something called “chow chow” I never heard of either.

      Not a Mennonite. I think it’s a midwestern thing.

      Which is basically what it is.

          I grew up around Philly, lots of Pennsylvania Dutch food around there – the chow-chow I saw had mustard, so  evidently quite a regional thing. My favorite Pennsyvania Dutch food is scrapple, fried crispy brown, with ketchup on it.  I loathe ketchup, except on scrapple.  Habersett’s scrapple, you do not want to know the ingredients.

            Yeah, I’m a vegetarian. I know I can’t eat scrapple. Lots of other stuff in that store looked good though.

              And now I am hungry and homesick, because I clicked on this link – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuisine_of_Philadelphia

              dang it.  I don’t know if Philly food is “cuisine”, but it sure is good.
