Candied Jalapenos (Cowboy Candy)

I made a 1/3 batch of this - those measurements in ( ) .

  • (1) 3 lbs firm, fresh Jalapeno Peppers, washed (i used other hot peppers)
  • (2/3) 2 cups Cider Vinegar
  • (2) 6 cups Granulated Sugar
  • (<) 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • (<) 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • (1) 3 tsp granulated garlic
  • (1/3) 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  1. Wearing gloves, remove stems from jalapenos and slice into uniform 1/8-1/4" rounds. Set aside.
  2. In large pot, bring cider vinegar, sugar, tumeric, celery seed, garlic & cayenne to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.  Add pepper slices and simmer for exactly 4 minutes.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to transfer peppers into sterile caning jars, up to within 1/4" of the upper rim of the jar. 
  4. Turn heat up under pot wth syrup and bring to full rolling boil.  Boil hard for 6 minutes.
  5. Use a ladel to pour boiling syrup into jars over jalapenos. 
  6. Wipe rims of the jars w/ clean damp cloth, and fix on new lids.
Leftover syrup can be jarred, and used brushed on meat to grill, etc.
