It's Cowboy Candy Day!

Recently I had the good fortune of visiting with my family on (self-designated) "Cowboy Candy Day." (You could also say it was Candied Jalapeño day.) We had a great memory-making time, and I was able to learn a bit about canning. I have been wanting to try it for years, so I was throwing out a lot of questions. Thankfully, I got some great answers. Here are the highlights in pictures.

Where it all began.


Ready to slice!

Perfect!


The simmering solution is ready...

A five minute simmer.

This is the "candy" part!

Now for the canning.


All that's left is to wait for the ping!
