When my husband and I started dating years ago, his grandmother would send down quarts of her Chow-Chow when she found out how much I loved it. Sadly, we lost her sometime after that and the recipe was lost too....or so I thought. My DH's aunt had it! This will scorch very easy. Don't try to rush it.

- 4 cups sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups white vinegar
- 6 hot peppers
- 6 large onions
- 6 green bell peppers
- Chop tomatoes peppers and onions bite-size or smaller.
- Put all ingredients in a large pot and cook on low simmer for 3-4 hours. (Recipe says to cook it "slow and cook down low").
