Hot Pepper Butter (Mustard) for Canning

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by CrazyCyndi

Awesome Mustard for anything from pretzels, sandwiches, or glazes on hams. I add more peppers than in the recipe for a hotter butter (approx 60 ranging med-large). Also I am trying other peppers as well, habenero, maybe only 10-12...I'll have to let you know how it works :) You will not be disappointed! I have sold the canned product to many family and friends and they can only say this is the best! Hope you enjoy!!

Can we say Yum? I used a combo of hot banana and about 10 jalapenos w/o seeds and also used 1 cup of honey in place of one cup of sugar. Turned out deelish. Now I'm going to make a half batch with all jalapenos and use the seeds too for hubby, he likes it hot.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Seed and chop peppers. (I use a food processor to chop the peppers tiny).
  2. Mix everything together. Boil for 5 minutes !Stirring Constantly! or until desired thickness.
  3. Ladle into hot, sterilized jars. Cap with hot lid and of course the ring and process in hot water bath for 10 minutes.
  4. Enjoy! (if not selling or giving away you may want to can in quart jars -- this doesn't last long! :).
