    Candied Jalapeños

    1/2 cup vinegar

    1/2 cup water

    6-8 cups sugar

    6 pounds fresh sliced jalapeño peppers

    some folks add diced onions to the recipe (not me i prefer purity)

    1.slice the jalapeños (i would suggest using latex gloves fer the prep
    work in case you get to scratching or rubbing , uh, your eye (personal experience)

    2.put peppers in pan of boiling water and vinegar and simmer
    bout 2-3 minutes they say not to breathe the fumes but i do
    tho it did chase the missus out of the house.

    3.pour off most of the water/vinegar, add the sugar.

    4.bring to soft candy temperature to completely dissolve the sugar
    approximately 10-12 minutes

    5.ladle the elixir into jars bout 1/4 inch from the top.

    6.screw on caps

    7.hot bath fer 5 minutes

    8. your done ! eat em right out of the jar or mix em with cream
    cheese on crackers
  2. Hey, Donny, with candied peppers you could a make a fruit cake for Xmas that would knock their socks off! I'd use habaneros were I you, or maybe some nice scotch bonnets. :D;)

    Hey, thanks for posting that here, Ron... I think Rusty and I would get along real well. :D

    I am definitely going to give it a try, soon!

    Ya know, Rich...I may just do that. The habanero works real well in anything that I want people to LEAVE ALONE anyway. :D

    I've never knowingly had a Scotch Bonnet, Rich... I dont know why they fill the stores up with habanero, but no bonnets?

    I don't see any Bhut Jolokia (Ghost pepper) either... Liability perhaps? :D

    Jeeze! I'm getting hungry!!!! :p:p:p:p
