Hello, and thanks for stopping by! Looking for a super easy, super tasty way to best use those extra jalapeños from your garden? Then stop right here, because Jalapeño Cowboy Candy is just the ticket!!
No canning involved, either!! So no fretting or worrying.
Slice those babies up, add the rest of my ingredients into a saucepan, and you’re almost there!!!
It’s so easy it’s almost like magic!!
Just a FEW easy steps, and you’ve got a wonderful, sweet and spicy treat that has ENDLESS uses!!
Besides just topping toasted baguettes or crackers with cream cheese and these sweet/hot candied peppers, you can also place them on top of burgers, brats, chili dogs, pizza, southwestern salads, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, soups, stews and chilies, and whatever else you can think of that you might like to spike!
Some people even like them on vanilla ice cream….but I don’t know about that one.
But I think they’d actually even be good stashed inside a garlic bologna sandwich! Now that would be a fun way to give a plain ol’ boring sandwich a nice little kick!
These really only take minutes to make, and are a really cool gift at Christmastime or as a hostess gift! For jalapeño lovers, this makes for a nice birthday present, too!
Who doesn’t love homemade gifts in a jar, right?
Nothing better than receiving love from someone’s kitchen picked fresh from their own garden!
These will last for months and months kept in the fridge, too! Some claim they will keep for only 3 months, but I’ve had a jar or two last even longer than that! One almost 6 months, actually.
A jar that had somehow gotten pushed to the back corner and neglected. Believe me…that will never happen again!
This recipe comes with a warning though, these little buggers are addictive!! You’ll be sneaking them into everything!!
So don’t wonder what to do with that last peck of fresh picked peppers, pickle them, Peter Piper! Sorry. I couldn’t stop myself.
Have a wonderful week! And enjoy!!
