Don’t let this name confuse you, no they aren’t candy, but they are sweet so the name still fits. My family ( well all but 2 tiny humans) love spicy. I had a ton of jalapenos and decided to do something different. I must admit these are great, whether on top of cream cheese and crackers or on top of burgers or a sandwich.
Makes 1 Pint.
1.5 lb. Fresh Jalapenos
1 C Cider Vinegar
3 C Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
3/4 tsp. Dried Chopped Garlic
1/4 tsp. Celery Seed
1/4 tsp. Turmeric
-Cut tops off of all jalapenos, slice about 1/8-1/4 inch thick.
-Combine all ingredients except jalapeños in pot over medium heat. Bring mixture to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Once starts to boil, reduce to simmer and continue cooking 5 minutes.
-Add in jalapenos, bring back to simmer, simmer 5 minutes.
-Using slotted spoon, remove jalapenos from pot and place into glass jar. Ladle in syrup until jalapenos are covered. Place lid on top. Good in refrigerator for a couple months. Enjoy!
*I strain all seeds from leftover broth and use as marinade for meat, as long as you like some spice its great.
