Candied Jalapenos

Did some candied jalapenos yesterday. I've never done them before so I just used 1 1/2# of peppers; which yielded two 1 pint jars. I'll try these is a few weeks; hoping they turn out!

Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Pretty simple really; here's a link to the recipe I used.

    I've had candied jalapenos before and they are a great garnish for lots of things.

    I'm doing some spicy pickled okra today.

    Gladly! Let me see how they turn out first. I'm going to let them sit for a couple of weeks before I open them.

    Pressure canned or hot water bath? I'd think you'd want to pressure can the peppers.

    I'll bet he doesn't know yet. From Wikipedia (which we know is the source of all knowledge):

    Jalapeños have 2,500–10,000 Scoville heat units

  • I make a similar version of these but I use the packs of Mrs wages bread and butter pickle mix. Just sterilize jars and lids, pack with peppers and pour the brine over them. I boil mine in water bath about 7 minutes. I did 2 dozen jars last summer and only have a few left.

    Just opened a jar Tues. night... they were pretty good. They have a little more bite than I had expected. I think that the next time I do them I might try removing the seeds and membrane from half the peppers. The syrup was just about the right sweetness however.

    The pickled okra that I did turned out pretty good.

    Made 1/4 recipe last night.  Couldn't wait and tried some in a Vietnamese sub today, syrup was good and not too spicy.

    Mmmmm, Cowboy Candy! Tried this myself last Fall with Jalapeños that we grew in the garden. I eat them with some softened cream cheese on Ritz. Good stuff. Can't take them straight up though! :)
