“A friend at work gave these to me last Christmas, and I had to have the recipe. These are so good! I can eat them right out of the jar, but they are especially good on burgers with monterrey jack cheese, with turnip greens, or peas or beans (southern style). The amount of sugar is an estimate...basically you equal it to the amount of jalapeno slices you have. Easy and delicious!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 28 ounces jalapeno peppers, sliced in a jar
  • water
  • 1 12 cups sugar


  1. Drain all the juice from the jar of peppers. Rinse with water a couple of times. Remove the sliced jalapenos from the jar, making sure they are well drained.
  2. Place a cup of peppers back into the jar, followed by a cup of sugar. Continue to alternate the layers in equal measure until you have used up your peppers.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Shake the mixture twice a day (every 8 hours) for 5 days.
  5. At this point, you can divide them up into smaller jars for gifts, or enjoy them yourself!
