Cooking Tools

  • Gloves
  • Mask
  • Bowl
  • Knife
  • Large saucepan
  • 5 half-pint jars

Cowboy Candy Jalapeno Peppers Ingredients

  • 20 large jalapenos
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon celery seed
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Cowboy Candy Jalapeno Peppers Directions

  • Wearing gloves and a mask, slice and discard stems from peppers, then slice into ¼-inch thick rounds. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • NOTE: Tame the heat! If you want to tame the heat a bit, you can remove the seeds and membrane from the peppers. After cutting off the stems, stick a long peeler inside each jalapeno, twist, and pull out the seeds. Then, slice into ¼-inch rounds.
  • In a large saucepan/pot over high heat, add all the other ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes. Set the timer.
  • Add in the sliced jalapenos, bring the heat back up to high, and simmer for exactly 4 minutes. Set the timer.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the peppers to clean, sterile canning jars to within a ¼-inch of the upper rim of the jar.
  • Put the pot with the remaining liquid back on the burner on high heat and boil for 7 minutes. Set the timer.
  • Then remove the pot from the heat and let cool for 3 minutes. Set the timer.
  • Ladle, carefully, the liquid syrup into the jars, making sure all the jalapenos are completely submerged. Use a chopstick and poke it into the bottom of the jars a few times to release any pockets of air.
  • Wipe the rims of the jars with a clean, damp paper towel. Seal with two-piece lids. Place in the fridge.
  • Let the jars chill for at least 2 weeks. Keep stored in the fridge and eat within 2 months.
  • Share with your friends - they will love you always!

ENJOY! Blessings and bee happy! 💗
