Ailene was always the matriarch to the Pharmacy Department at the hospital. She was fun, gracious and wonderful person. I have adopted several of her recipes and this one is extra special. This chow recipe tastes exactly the same as my Grammie’s recipe!

1-2 lbs onions

1 rounded cup white sugar
1 rounded cup brown sugar
1 oz pickling spice.
