KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Cowboy Candy
Prepared by Melissa Graves of Donna's Cafe
3 lbs fresh firm jalapeños ( any hot peppers)
2 cups vinegar
6 cups white sugar
3 TBS Garlic
Note: WEAR GLOVES
remove stems and slice
Bring vinegar, sugar, and garlic to boil and simmer for 5 minutes
Return to hard boil and reduce heat for 4 minutes
Can be refrigerated for use.
You can also can in sterile jars. If canning dip peppers into 1/2 pint jars. Return syrup to full boil for 6 minutes. Pour syrup over peppers, leave 1/4 inch rim space and wipe rim of jar clean.
Place caps on jars
Place jars in water bath 2 inch below rims and boil for 10 minutes. Place jars on counter wrapped in a towel overnight. Leave alone till next day and Check for seals on all jars. Enjoy as a side garnish or try on a grilled cheese. My favorite is cheese burgers. The syrup is an excellent kick up for chicken and waffles.
