This is my ex-mother in law's recipe. I got her to e-mail it to me yesterday. It is the best chow recipe I have ever eaten. I've made many many jars of this in my lifetime. You will not be dissappointed if you try this one! I am posting this so I never lose it again! I am guestimating at the amount it makes.
