The recipe we use is from the Hill Country Cook. We use 5 lbs, jalapeños to make 12 half pints, with the same amount of syrup. There will be leftover liquid.

Cowboy Candy
Yield: 10 half pintsPrep Time: 60 minutesCook Time: 30 minutesTotal Time: 1 1/2 hours, 2-4 cure time
ingredients:
3 pounds Firm, Fresh Jalapeno Peppers, Washed
2 cups Cider Vinegar
6 cups White Granulated Sugar
½ teaspoons Turmeric
½ teaspoons Celery Seed
3 teaspoons Granulated Garlic
1 teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper

directions:
Put on a pair of gloves, and slice the jalapeños into thin slices.
In a large pot, bring cider vinegar, white sugar, turmeric, celery seed, granulated garlic and cayenne pepper to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the pepper slices and simmer for exactly 4 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the peppers, loading into clean, sterile canning jars to within 1/4 inch of the upper rim of the jar. Turn heat up under the pot with the syrup and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil hard for 6 minutes.

Use a ladle to pour the boiling syrup into the jars over the jalapeno slices. Be sure to remove any air bubbles and then wipe the rims of the jars before screwing new lids on.

Process for 15 minutes.

If you have leftover syrup, be sure to save! It is delicious as a marinade, or an add in to potato salad; the possibilities are endless!

Allow the jars to mellow for 2-4 weeks before using, and store in the refrigerator. I tasted some before the 2 weeks, and they were GREAT! Enjoy!

Guru, that is the exact recipe that I used!

I am thinking these would make great little Christmas gifts, especially using a combo of jalapeños and fresnos.

If I had to pick a favorite eating pepper - it would be the Jalapeño.

Anaheim
Poblano
Guajillo
Tabasco

The grocery stores have all 5 in one form or another.

Jillian - my niece and nephew just love these candied jalapeños! I have to make them every year for one their Christmas gifts. I've used green, red, and mixed jalapeños, but fresnos would work fine, too. The mix of the red and green are pretty for the Christmas season.

Are you talking about the Hill Country Cook Katie Burkhart that lives up the road from me?

Ditto to Guru's recipe!!! They're very addictive and you can adjust the heat level by the use of different varieties of jalapenos.

Worth, the website says her name is Katie Rhea. But I'm sure she is the great cook up the road from you!

Maybe you should pay her a little visit?

I wasn't able to find her name anywhere on the website, but I did find it here - http://www.pbs.org/food/features/kit...-food-blogger/.

Maybe one is her married name and the other is her maiden name???

All I know is that I'm dying to try her New Mexico apple Pie recipe, http://thehillcountrycook.com/2013/1...apple-pie.html

I can say right now I have seen her at the HEB store in Bastrop and spoken with her about something I have no idea what but I do not forget a face.
Probably sausage or something, yes it is all coming back we were in line and talking about shooting game and making deer sausage.
She was asking me about my huge meat grinder and stuffer I think.
Very nice person.
