Ailene’s Chow

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!

5 lbs green tomatoes
1-2 lbs onions
