My garden is exploding with jalapeños! I made this jalapeño candy because I seriously didn’t know what to do with them all.

For the jalapeño candy, you’ll need about 10 jalapeños.

First things first, combine the sugar and the cider vinegar in a small pot. Boil the mixture or about 3 minutes, or until the sugar is completely dissolved.

While the mixture boils, slice the jalapeños. I wear gloves for this step!

Then, once the sugar is dissolved, add the jalapeños to the mixture and cook for 4 minutes. Make sure to stir so that all the jalapeños are covered by liquid.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the peppers. I placed them directly into a mason jar.

Reduce the liquid until it is thick and syrupy, about 15-20 minutes. Pour the mixture over the jalapeños. Before covering, allow the jalapeño candy to cool.

Use them on burgers, on sandwiches, or in your breakfast egg dishes. They’re delicious in burritos and or sprinkled on top of goat cheese.

If you’re worried about the heat, you can remove the seeds and pith. I like mine a little more on the spicy side, so I left the seeds.

      It all depends how spicy the jalapenos are. I think mild jalapenos would end up being mild. These were pretty spicy and ended up being sweet and medium spicy. Hope that helps!

    Bri, this sounds amazing! I’ve never had candied jalapenos but the sweet + spicy mix has me going all weak in the knees :) Also, now I know what to do with the pound of jalapenos I randomly have lurking in my veggie drawer!

    I never thought of candied jalapenos either, but now I reckon I’ll be thinking of them all the time. So easy & simple & off the top of my head can think of about a million things they’d go with too. Right up my street methinks.
