“Fresh jalapenos is needed for this recipe which easily doubles/triples to do in batches for canning. This is JJ's chutney that will give your mouth a funky little roller coaster ride of hot & sweet. Serve it with cream cheese on crackers, or as chutney on Tortilla chips. Great for gift baskets! Remove the seeds from the jalepenos for 'Cowgirl Candy'. I have sometimes made this with an assortment of hot peppers from our garden.”
