A lot of folks call it cowboy candy. There are recipes all over but most are exactly the same just a different name. I use This one over at amazing ribs as a baseline. I love this stuff. I'm just mad I forgot to make more before the last jar ran out. They're really not at their best until after a good two week rest in the fridge.

My standard mix of jalapenos, serranos and little fire bomb peppers. Those serranos turn the nicest red...

Bring the syrup to a boil and toss in the goodies

Bring em back to a boil for about 30 seconds or so

Finished product. I did a double batch this time. Now all I have to do is wait :emoji_angry:

If you've never made these before, you should. Nice sweet and hot. Thanks for looking!

You can use any peppers, but the sweet heat balance is tasty. With just jalapenos it's mild. Give it a go!

Looks nice! I wish I could make that but way too much sugar for me! :emoji_disappointed:

Not sure how well it would do sugar free. I guess there are sugar substitutes but I have no experience with them. Wouldn't hurt to experiment a little.

I'm going to do this TODAY!! Thanks...
Do it!

Well I said I was going to do this and I did this morning. Only used jalapenos and made enough for 1 quart jar, about 2 lbs. of peppers. In a few days, I'll check it out...

Lookin good! I let them sit no less than a week, sometimes two. They're just not quite right until then for me anyway.
