  1. 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 - Read more ...
  2. 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.

  8. 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 - Read more ...
