Jalapeno Sweeties

(Candied Jalapenos)

4 lbs fresh jalapeno peppers sliced
2 lbs onion, diced bite size chunks
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
6 to 8 cups sugar
2 tablespoons turmeric
2 teaspoons celery seed (optional)
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ginger

Slice Jalapenos into thin slices and dice the onions. ( I suggest wearing rubber gloves while handling the jalapenos and DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE!

Place jalapenos in pan with water and vinegar. Bring the pan to a boil then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer unitl tender (about 10 minutes.) Remove the lid from the pan carefully and do not breath fumes. Pour off the water and vinegar.

Add the sugar and spices, bring to soft candy temperature to completely disolve the sugar.

Place boiling mixture into sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Put on caps and place rings on loosely.

Tighten the rings, once the jars are completely cooled.
