*Candied Jalapeños

This is our house recipe. Just a few suggestions-wear gloves when slicing the jalapeños. Cook outside if you can, the peppers release gas and can be hard on your eyes, nose, pets, etc. Think of pepper spray! It can be that rough. If doing inside, open windows, doors and turn exhaust fan on high! The cooking does not take long, do not leave unattended. You will have syrup left over, have more jars ready if you’d like to keep for future use. The syrup is good in Dark-n-Stormy’s too

2 Cups White Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Water
2/3 Cup Distilled White Vinegar
3/4 Pound Fresh Green Jalapeños, washed thoroughly One 12 oz jar with a lid

Slice jalapeños into 1/8” rings. Discard stems.
Cook the water, sugar and vinegar in a saucepan over medium heat until it boils and stir until sugar has dissolved. Add peppers and bring back up to a boil for about 20 seconds. While they are hot, ladle peppers into jar. Once peppers are tightly packed, add syrup to cover them. Tighten jar lid, let cool to room temperature, then store in refrigerator. Great on burgers, nachos, a fork, you name it!

*Cabernet Sauvignon with tacos or Carne Asada
*Verdejo or any other Spanish white wine with that chunky guacamole!
