Homemade Cowboy Candy Recipe (Candied Jalapenos)

These candied jalapenos (also known as cowboy candy) are the ideal sweet-and-spicy condiment to spice up your favorite cuisine. They are fiery jalapeno slices in a sugary glaze.

Ingredients: jalapeños apple cider vinegar brown sugar turmeric garlic powder sugar, granulated cayenne pepper celery seed

Slice jalapeño stems off while wearing gloves, then cut peppers into 1/4-inch wide rounds and add the peppers to a bowl.

Add all the additional ingredients to a sizable pot set over high heat. After bringing to a boil, turn down the heat to a low simmer for about five minutes.

The jalapenos should be added now. Increase the heat to high and simmer for 4 minutes.

Spread the peppers to within a 1/4-inch of the upper jar rim in a clean, sterilized canning jar using a slotted spoon.

Cook the liquid for around 5-7 minutes on high heat with the pot below. After that, turn off the heat and let the pot cool for about three minutes.

Transfer the syrup into the jars carefully using a ladle (or a pitcher that has a spout), making sure that all of the jalapenos are completely immersed.

Refrigerate for at least two weeks (preferably a month.) Cowboy candy will taste better the longer they sit. Eat within two months and keep refrigerated.
