I think I may have misunderstood the directions. I had some garden jalapenos to get rid of and tried this recipe on them. I am guessing the peppers need to be pickled first? Did not work on fresh peppers. Needs clarification. Read More

I had these at a party and they were absolutely delicious! When some friends and I asked the host how to make them he told me he would sell us a jar at 20 a jar. We all laughed at him thinking he was kidding but he wasn't. The last laugh is on him because now I can make my own and hand the recipe out! Thank you for this FREE recipe! Read More

I couldn't find a large jar of these but bought a large can at sams club. I drained some of the juice off and added the 5 pound bag of sugar and heated it on the stove until all the sugar dissolved. After they cooled some I put them in smaller canning jars and made sure that the peppers were covered with the juice. I put them in the fridge for a week and they were delicious. I didn't flip the jars over daily because the sugar was dissolved and the jar was full of juice. They were a HIT!!! Read More

I made this simply because I had left over jalapenos and was not going to waist them. I made this thinking I would probably never enjoy it. I mean sugar and jalapenos? yuck! Well today I finally opened that jar that had been sitting in the back of my fridge for two weeks. I did what the others did and used it on crackers and cream cheese. This was amazingly good. I will say that I found I needed to get as much liquid as possible off of the jalapenos before putting on top of the cream cheese. Otherwise it was too sweet for my taste buds. I can't believe this tasted so good especially when I expected it to taste pretty bad. I'm glad I tried it! Also if you wanted to make a spread you could just add the peppers to the creamed cheese and mix. If you were planning on making a bunch of little cracks that would probably be the way to go.

I made 1/2 gallon due to not being able to find a gallon this morning at the store one of my friends brought some of these to work with crackers and cream cheese and I could not stay out of break area. If there was a 10 star this would get it. Read More

So easy and so good - we had cans of sliced jalapenos that I'd forgotten what I even bought them for... we're not huge jalapeno fans and tested this on a whim but THESE ARE ADDICTIVE! We served on a cheese tray and these on top of a simple cracker with cream cheese and venison sausage are SO YUMMY!!! I scaled back to 5 servings to just test one can; we love these so much we'll be making some to keep in the fridge all the time - can't wait to try on a sandwich or in potato salads - oooo - tuna salad! Thanks!!! Read More

these were amazing. I only had a 16 oz jar of sliced jalapeno peppers so added just over 1 cup of sugar. I recommend pouring off some of the liquid and adding the sugar to the jalapenos in a separate bowl. Add jalapenos back to the original container and add back what ever liquid that will fit in jar. We served over cream cheese with wheat thins. Our friends loved them!! Read More
