    MarieRynr's Note:

    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.

      This was easy to make and very tasty. My husband was looking for a recipe for green tomatoe chow from his childhood and claims this was it. It is a great way to use up your green tomatoes at the end of the growing season. I certainly recommend trying it.

      Super good. Mine was a little thin, so the next time I won't add the second 2 cups of water, maybe just 1. It may be I didn't drain them well enough or our altitude. A great way to use those tomatoes we rescued from our first frost! Thanks so much!
