Candied Jalapenos


*4 lbs. jalapeno peppers - actually any pepper will do, none of the heat is lost.
*2 lbs. onions
*¼ cup vinegar
*¼ cup water or more if needed
*6 to 8 cups sugar, 8 cups if you like sweet.
*2 TBS mustard seed
*2 tsp. turmeric
*2 tsp. celery seed
*1 tsp. ginger
* 1 tsp. garlic powder (do not use garlic salt) or 4 cloves of fresh garlic crushed.

Wash and cut Jalapenos and onions into thin slices place in large covered saucepot, with water and vinegar bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until tender. About 10 minutes (Caution: Use rubber gloves when cutting the peppers and do not touch your face personal experience!). Pour off most (90%) of the vinegar water add remaining ingredients. Bring to a soft candy temperature on a candy thermometer. Pack in jars leaving ¼ inch headspace, adjust lids. Yields about 7 pints.. Keep the liquid poured off the Jalapenos to make jalapeno jelly.Eat and enjoy
