Loved these!!! I reduced the recipe, to a smaller jar (9 oz.) and the sugar, accordingly. After faithfully and dutifully shaking the jar for 5 days, I was rewarded with these green gems, glistening brightly, just calling for the cream cheese and crackers! I obliged! :) The sweet from the peppers is wonderful against the cream cheese, with the hint of the heat, at the end. I think that I'll be making these to include in the gift baskets I make for my friends around the holidays! Thanks so much for sharing, breezermom!
Well, this was a bit of a treat. A friend and I got to talking, and I mentioned this recipe to her, and ended up making it. I used a small can of slivered jalapenos that were labeled "hot" marinated. They've actually been sitting around for about a week in the sugar. Just pulled some out with whipped cream cheese and crackers -really a nice treat. They are still quite not, but the sweet/hot taste works well with the cream cheese.
Finally, after waiting 5 long days, my jalapenos were ready for tasting. I have to admit that I might have tasted one or two along the way - hope that was not too much of a sin. They certainly do have a after-bite, but it is addicting. Can't wait to serve these with some cream cheese. I plan to keep a jar handy at all times. Thanks for the post!

Really good jalpenos.Good in a bowl of ham and beans or with cream cheese and crackers or even by them selfs.
wonderful recipe. I was finally able to find a jar of jalapenos but a smaller jar probably 9 oz. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar with it. The first time I tasted it, I found it sweet but then the spicy taste of the jalapeno came through. It's so yummy. Sweet and spicy. Thanks Breezermom :) Made for PRMR tag game
This is a great recipe. I've been doing this for a couple of years. It also makes a great relish if you process or grind the peppers in a food processor and return them to the jar. Great with cream cheese on a cracker. Thanks for posting !
Excellent little tasty nibbles of heat! We just loved these. I made a small jar to start off with (just in case) I didn't want to ruin my big 32oz jar of jalapeno peppers. The steps of equal amount are perfect. I used a small mayonnaise jar and alternated 1/4 cup of peppers and sugar for a total of 1/2 cup each. Well....during the shaking time I found the the sugar really liked to hang out at the bottom of the jar. So being the wimp I am I took a spoon to help mix it. By day 5 I washed the spoon :) (just kidding). DH and I took a test taste of the sugar vs the non sugar peppers. We found the non sugar had a lot more saltiness to them. My photo shows one lonely non sugar pepper with the delicious sugared ones. I served them on leftover Sweet and Smoky Barbecue Beans. YUM! Thanks for posting and these little guys are going in my best of 2010 cookbook. :)
This is so wonderfully easy! I absolutely love this recipe. Thanks so much breezermom, for this definite keeper recipe. :)

Oh yeah! I'm lovin' these peppers. Made a small, 'test' batch. They were at 5 days on Friday, so I've spent the weekend making random trips to the fridge to nibble on them all by themselves. Last night I served them as a topping for grilled steak. Love the sweetness just before the spicy bite of the hot jalapenos I used. They remind me just a little of 'pepper jelly'....I'm looking forward to having them as a snack with crackers and cream cheese. Thanks for a wonderful post. These are going to make a great addition to my holiday gift baskets this year!
