    Default Jalapeno Relish (Cowboy Candy)

    I got this recipe from my neighbor after trying some that he made. Made my first batch yesterday evening.

    • 4 lb Jalapeno peppers (sliced)
    • 2 lb onions (diced)
    • 1/2 cup white vinegar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 6 cups sugar
    • 2 Tbsp mustard seed
    • 1 tsp turmeric
    • 2 tsp celery seed
    • 1 Tbsp garlic powder

    Do this outside. You'll be glad you did.

    Put peppers and onions in stock pot with water and vinegar. Bring to a boil and simmer until everything is soft.

    Drain off most (or all) of the water. There will only be a little but you won't need it. The amount to drain off is not critical. The sugar you are about to add will be more than enough liquid.

    Add sugar and spices. Bring to a soft boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.

    Bottle it up. I put mine in 1/2 pint jars with 1/4" headspace. For canning, place in hot water bath (boiling water) for 20 minutes for 1/2 pint or 1 pint jars.

    If you have any liquid left, save it. Probably be great for cooking or as a baste.

    That sounds very good. Too bad I don't have enough japalenos left. Wanna trade a jar for some hot homemade salsa?

    The sweet habanero sauce recipe is here. Although the recipe uses canned peaches in heavy syrup, the last time I was in the grocery getting the ingredients I looked for mangos to try in a batch and couldn't find any.

    Got a bumper crop of habaneros this year so I'm swimming in the stuff. I've made no telling how many batches and I've still got a fridge drawer crammed with newly picked heebs.

    Do you seed the peppers or not?

    Optional. Made one batch with seeds and I was the only one in the family who could eat it. Bunch of babies...

    k i like things with a kick or a little bite but not hot so i will take out most of seeds. Thanks for the recipe, we bought some from a vendor at a deer expo and it took me two hours to find this recipe. I hope it compares, the ingredients look right so crossing my fingers. We ate the jar in 2 days! He called it crack on a cracker because it was so additive, and now I know why.

    We never did get together to trade out some canned goodness. I just made some salsa yesterday that I named XXX, some of the hottest to date.

    Just finished making this, and tasted a little I had left, and I am very please, tastes just like the stuff we bought! I only used seeds from 2-3 peppers just enough to give it a kick. Thanks for the recipe!!
