Last Spring I picked up a few jalapeno plants at a flea market. I gave two to a neighbor, and kept two for myself. Peppers tend to come in fairly late in my garden. But I've had enough jalapenos to make salsa several times. And a few weeks ago I picked a bunch to make candied jalapenos.
I'd never made candied jalapenos before (I often make jalapeno jelly though). Cooking up jalapenos kind of makes the kitchen smell like it's been maced. I love jalapenos and most spicy things, so it's worth it.
I didn't get a huge yield (next year I'll plant more) but I did get a couple of jars of candied jalapenos. They are delicious! Perfect on cheese and crackers.
