  • Reviews

  • “Nice idea to serve the jalapenos up in a different way. Folks at work were intrigued with the easy recipe”

  • “Very tasty! I love that I can now make these at home. I have always balked at the price of these peppers when I would see them at the store. These were delicious on toast spread with cream cheese.”

  • “Love them!Found your recipe and figured it had to be cheaper to buy a big jar and make them than to buy what my family calls “Sweet Hots”.I didn’t want to do the whole jar as I like jalapenos with just about anything so I used a smaller jar, stuffed it full, and started with 1/4 cup sugar.Ended up (like another reviewer) using about 3/4 cup sugar in the end.But it was easily adjustable to personal sweet/hot preference.They are wonderful.Plan on making another jar and giving to my parents since they love them too.Thanks for posting!”

  • “These were so good and so easy.I tried a similar recipe in the past that required boiling all the ingredients together.This was so much easier.I served as suggested with cream cheese and crackers.This makes a lot of sweet/hot syrup; I’m thinking of adding the syrup to other things for a flavor boost.”

  • “I made these with my DH in mind but I absolutely LOVE them! I can’t tolerate too much heat but these were a great combo of hot/sweet. I put some in baked beans I made last night and they were awesome. I think next I will try some chopped up in potato salad instead of pickle relish. Thanks for the great recipe!”

  • “Amazing and this is from someone that paid the $5 to $8 for a jar.These were ready after about 24 hours.This will be on my gift giving list.Made for *PAC Spring 2008*”

  • “So easy to make and a great combination of sweet and hot!I served as suggested with cream cheese and crackers and also used as a condiment on burgers and enchiladas.Very versatile!”

  • “Made these for a Christmas party dip this weekend.My host ran out of note paper for people who wanted the recipe!!!Thanks!I will be making this again.”

  • “these are incredible!! i used a 12 ounce bottle of jalapenos and 3/4 cup of sugar. we love theses=”
