Texas Cowboy Candy

If you are a pansy you can remove the seeds/membrane from the jalapenios, that takes out most of the heat.

Can be eaten immediately, however best when cured for 1-2 weeks.

My family loves to spread this candy along with cream cheese on a wheat thin.

Prep:
1 Hr
Cook:
2 Hr

Ingredients

4 lb
jalapenos, fresh
2 lb
diced onions
1/2 c
vinegar
1/2 c
water
6 to 8 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
mustard seed
1 tsp
turmeric, ground
2 tsp
celery seed
1 Tbsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
ginger powder

Step-By-Step

1Slice jalapenos into thin slices and dice onions (I would suggest a pair of rubber gloves for handling jalapenos.) Place in pan with water and vinegar, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes or until tender.(DO NOT TOUCH FACE OR BREATH THE FUMES.)

2Pour off most of the water/vinegar mixture, add the sugar and spices bring to soft candy temperature to completely dissolve sugar, about 10 minutes.

3Place boiling mixture into warm/sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Put on caps and place rings on loosely. Tighten the rings once the jars are completely cooled.
