These are very good, but it irritates me to run into a recipe that does give me what size of jars? Are these pints or 1/2 pints?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice Jalapenos into thin slices and dice onions (I would suggest a pair of rubber gloves for handling jalapenos, personal experience, do not touch your face!).
  2. Place in pan with water and vinegar, bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer about 2 mim. (do not breath fumes) .
  3. Pour off most of the water vinegar mixture, add the sugar and spices.
  4. Bring to soft candy temperature to completely dissolve sugar about another 10 minute
  5. Place boiling mixture into jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.
  6. Adjust caps.
  7. Water bath 5 min to insure a good seal.
  8. *note: if you like the peppers a little crisp, boil mixture and add peppers at the end.
