Candied Jalapeños

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore these Candied Jalapeños. They’re sweet, they’re spicy, SO addicting, and my new favorite homemade gift to give.

I love receiving and giving homemade gifts this time of year. Because I’m not very crafty (read: not crafty at all), all of the homemade gifts I give come out of my kitchen. Cookies are an obvious choice to hand out this time of year but they’re not always my favorite thing to give. Some of my favorite food gifts are homemade chips and salsa, chex mix, and whatever canned goods I preserved in the fall.

I preserved these Candied Jalapeños a few months ago and they might be my favorite thing I’ve ever canned. If you like the sweet and spicy combo you’re going to love these. THey’re not like burn your face off spicy. More of a runny nose kind of heat, you know? I can’t stop once I start. They’re sweet, spicy, crunchy, and kind of my everything right now. My favorite way to eat them is on crackers slathered with cream cheese. Omg, you guys, just try it. My second favorite way to eat them is in a grilled a cheese. My third is on ground beef tacos. Yes, yes, and yes!

These are super simple to make and could easily be your Saturday afternoon project if you’re still looking to make something homemade for the holidays. Besides having a few jars of these on hand are perfect for when you need a quick appetizer. Pour a jar of these Candied Jalapeños over a brick of cream cheese, throw some Wheat Thins on a plate and voile. BEST appetizer ever.
