    Before you start to mix ingredients, turn your water bath canner on or pot of boiling water to get the water ready to can.
    Use a non reactive pot on stove set to low and add the ingedients, mix together
    Cook on stove, boil for 5 mins ,turn to simmer for 10 mins
    Add your fresh sliced jalepenos to the sterilized jars Using Gloves is a plus so you do not get burned from the peppers.
    Remove pot from stove and ladle liquid into jars of peppers leaving a little head space but enough to cover the peppers fully. Do not twist the lids completely on.
    Can for 15 mins. Remove and cool , twist lids tightly
    These will last up to a year in pantry. I have friends who eat these and they love them.
    You can determine the amount of jalepenos by your jars I used wide mouth pint size jars , I have a abundance of peppers and canning them is the best way to preserve them to last throughout the year. You can omit the canning step by placing the jar in the fridge as well it will keep for several weeks.
Whole jalapeños
These are what I started with.

Slice the Jalepeños with gloves, If you do not use gloves you will get burned and it takes several days to get the pepper burn from your skin.
