Cowboy Candy


Cowboy Candy 31302505358_5b400fec6f_b


I absolutely love these, they are fantastic with cream cheese and garlic toasted rolls or Ritz Crackers, I will definitely be doing a double batch next season.




Ingredients


  • 3 pounds fresh firm, jalapeno peppers, washed
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 6 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 3 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Instructions


  • Wearing gloves, remove the stems from all of the jalapeno peppers. The easiest way to do this is to slice a small disc off of the stem-end along with the stem. Discard the stems. Slice the peppers into uniform 1/8-1/4 inch rounds. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Insert a cooking chopstick to the bottom of the jar two or three times to release any trapped pockets of air. Adjust the level of the syrup if necessary.
  • Wipe the rims of the jars with a clean, damp paper towel and fix on new, two-piece lids to finger-tip tightness.
  • Place jars in a canner, cover with water by 2-inches. Bring the water to a full rolling boil. When it reaches a full rolling boil, set the timer for 10 minutes for half-pints or 15 minutes for pints.
  • When timer goes off, use canning tongs to transfer the jars to a cooling rack. Leave them to cool, undisturbed, for 24 hours.
  • When fully cooled, wipe them with a clean, damp washcloth then label.
  • Allow to mellow for at least two weeks, but preferably a month before eating.



Picked 3.5 pounds of Jalapenos for a batch of cowboy candy, the reds that were not crisp are set aside to dry and make chili powder.

Looks so good! I have lots of red jalapenos still on the plants, ready for picking. Do you think I'd be able to use those in your recipe or are thy too soft to handle the heating process? My wife wants to try the reds in her red pepper jelly recipe, but yours looks pretty tempting.

You could try it but if I had a choice of the two, I would prefer the Red Pepper Jelly.

It's getting time for canning and various Cowboy Candy recipes are found all over the place.

Ball (R) has a safe recipe called Candied Jalapenos that has been tested and is safe.   Because it requires only 15 minutes of water bathing, it can also be steamed in a VKP Steam Canner.

https://www.ballmasonjars.com/blog?cid=candied-jalapenos&fbclid=IwAR05KUl_eJyUSV4ufDlHPuUDlfLrX8u---prEOyGUEfgPxHjvTbKZRGjDfM

INGREDIENTS
3 cups vinegar, ACV or white (at least 5% acidity)

2 tsp salt

4 cups sugar

6 cloves garlic, sliced

2 tsp. turmeric

½ tsp cayenne powder

2 tsp. mustard seeds

4 pounds jalapenos, sliced into ¼ inch rings

DIRECTIONS
FIRST, LET'S PREP!

Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready to use, do not boil. Wash lids in warm soapy water and set aside with bands.

NEXT, TIME TO COOK!

Combine all ingredients except jalapenos in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar.

Add jalapenos slices, lower heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes, until jalapenos are dark green and have begun to absorb some of the brine.

NEXT, LET'S CAN IT!

Ladle hot jalapenos into a hot jar leaving a 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rim. Center lid on jar and apply band, adjust to fingertip tight. Place jar in boiling-water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.


Water must cover jars by 1 inch. Adjust heat to medium-high, cover canner, and bring water to a rolling boil. Process pint jars 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat and remove cover. Let jars cool 5 minutes. Remove jars from canner; do not retighten bands if loose. Cool 12-24 hours. Check lids for seal, they should not flex when center is pressed

On July 7, I made 4 small jars of Candied Jalapenos, the safe canning recipe for "Cowboy Candy".  I haven't tried them yet.  Shocked   How are they eaten?  On a sandwich?

I like it best with cream cheese on a Town House cracker!  It is a delicious spread!

It is also good in a dish of baked beans, and as a great topping on beef or pork. And, of course, it is a fantastic "relish" on a hot dog or hamburger.  hungry
