Whycocomagh Chow-Chow
First of all you MUST use Whycocomagh Grown Tomatoes.              Anything else we cannot guarantee success.
24 cups of chopped green Whycocomagh Grown Tomatoes.
4 lbs. chopped onions - (from "The Valley")
1/3 cup salt.
Vinegar -- ( I would have said "Heinz", if they would pay me, but they did not,
                so I will not give them a "plug" here.)
7 Cups sugar  ( Same goes for "Lantic")
1/4 cup Pickling spice.


Mix tomatoes (Whycocomagh grown) and onions (From "The Valley")  together.
Sprinkle generously with salt and let stand overnight.

Early in the morning (About 8 or 9 AM) drain of the water and cover,(barely) with vinegar.
Add white sugar and pickling spice tied in a cheesecloth bag.

Boil for 2 to 3 Hours. and then bottle while HOT.

Mae takes the spice bag out after an hour , or so, and samples the "brew" to see if it needs more vinegar,
sugar or salt.

Hope this works for you - if it doesn't you probably did not use Whycocomagh grown Tomatoes.
