As you know from previous garden posts, my garden has been popping with jalapeno peppers. I used some in salsa, some in casseroles or other recipes, and froze some – but a little bit of pepper can go a long way!
So I decided to give my first go of canning. I found this recipe for Cowboy Candy (candied jalapenos) from Tasty Kitchen. I started with about 3 pounds of peppers.
Then I sliced them all up…warning: wear gloves!
I cooked these in the vinegar/sugar/spice mixture for about 5 minutes, then funneled them into the sterilized jars.
Then I used my handy new little canning basket to put the jars in and boiled for about 15 minutes.
Then I let them cool overnight and will let them mellow for a good few weeks or month.
I am looking forward to enjoying them on this…
