Candied Jalapenos

Candied Jalapenos
I am a fan of spicy hot chili peppers and I always have a jar of pickled jalapeno peppers in my fridge so when I heard about candied jalapenos I just had to try making them! Candied jalapenos are pretty much just pickled jalapenos that are sweetened with sugar. Whoa! Spicy and tangy jalapenos that are also sweet? Yum! Candied jalapenos are nice and easy to make; you just need to slice up a bunch of jalapeno chili peppers and simmer them in a combination of vinegar and sugar which adds the tanginess from the vinegar and the sweetness from the sugar to the jalapenos. That's it! With just a few minutes of effort you have a nice sized batch of candied jalapenos and I can really see why they are called candied jalapenos because they are so good that I just devour them, like popping candy! These candied jalapenos can of course be used in things like sandwiches, salads, on pizzas, etc. in addition to just eating them straight out of the jar!
