How to Make Cowboy Candy
- 1Slice jalapenos and place in a small sauce pan. Add water and sugar. Stir and cook over medium heat until boiling.
- 2Reduce heat to a low simmer and continue cooking until liquid has reduced and sugar-water is like syrup (15029 minutes).
- 3Let cool and place in a clean jelly jar. Store in refrigerator. You'll soon become addicted to adding this to many of your dishes. This recipe can easily be doubled. We are now true addicts of our new favorite candy!
