Cowboy Candy - Check this out!

I don't have much history with canning, but I have learned so much about this craft and the crazy names people have for some of the canning concoctions they have come up with. Cowboy Candy was interesting since I had never heard  of them as sweet pickled jalapenos.  I picked up a pound of fresh jalapenos at the local market and followed the recipe. They are still working their magic in the jar but will post their taste when I open them the end of October.

Small Batch Cowboy Candy
(pickled jalapenos)
pickled jalapenos cowboy candy
1 lb fresh jalapenos
2/3 cup cider vinegar
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons mustard seed
1/4 teaspoon tumeric
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Slice jalapenos. Mix cider vinegar, sugar, tumeric, celery and mustard seed, garlic, and cayenne to boil. Reduce for 5 minutes to a simmer. Add jalapenos at the simmer for 5 minutes more. Load sterilized jars with jalapenos first and add liquid filling the jars leaving a 1/4 headspace. Process in a water bath for 15 minutes. Makes 2 pints

Eat with cream cheese on crackers or on a juicy hamburger!
