Canning Pickled Jalapenos with a twist - Happy Trails Candy!
I was brainstorming what was missing from my cowboy candy that would turn it more into a pickle mix that I get when I go to my favorite mexican restaurant. Carrots, onion, and a touch of red peppers was the color and textures needed. After a bit of chopping and protecting my hands from stinging all night the veggies went into jars and out of the canner was my Happy Trails mix. It has the sweet heat from the vinegar and sugar, but now those intense flavors and the heat from the peppers will transform my carrots and additional ingredients into works of magic! Enjoy
