You should be able to candy them. Be sure they are thoroughly thawed, and relatively dry. The candied peppers will also turn out slightly softer then from fresh. That is unless you're making them as a hard candy.

Sugar burns aren't that bad once the skin peals off 3 seconds later. just kidding. So I am using a strainer to remove the finished candies. Not the best tool considering the thickness but a fork was too small and became a sticky mess. Is a wooden spoon best?

as a substitute, try 2 larger spoons. Scoop it up and then use the 2nd spoon to hold the stuff while it drains.

I have those kind. I ended up using an old style wire spoon. Has the ring with 3 curly q wires going across. Hard to describe I guess. Also a wooden spoon. The fumes from this were wicked compared to when I make hot sauce. I guess the lack of wind and therefore ventilation made it worse too.

Thank you DaQatz for the step by step.

Yeah, once you sugar is above boiling temp there's no more water in it. A few more notes the longer you leave the sugar going the more "caramel like" it will taste. Though it will get dark fast, and if you let it over heat will get "nasty" scorched tasting very fast.
Also I would recommend trying some some in their soft stage ,like I make them. They are great on burgers ,with a dog, in chili ,etc...

DaQatz,
What a great job posting your recipe....
And after stumbling onto the thread just yesterday, I felt compelled to make a trip to the best place around here to get fresh Jalapeno's.
I bought 3 lbs of perfect peppers, and will be starting off early in the morning trying my best to follow your instructions and duplicate your recipe. If all goes well...the majority of my Christmas shopping will simply be buying additional half pint jelly jars. (Hell...my mouth is watering just typing this.)
Thanks for sharing the recipe....much appreciated.
CM

Dang it!!! I thought I had done all of my Christmas gift cooking but I guess there is more to come. I can't resist the thought of candied chiles. Has anyone tried dehydrating after they are good and candied? Have a recipe for candied chile cheesecake that is calling my name! :fireball:

Dehydrating is pointless, IMO, because the process removes all the water.

IMO

I could be wrong. DaQatz is the expert on this if you ask me.

The process of candying removes most of the water. So a standard dehydrator will have very little effect. The peppers are already preserved by the sugar so it's not a real issue. If you wanted to stick it in the dehydrator to make it crunchy then just check the whole thread. There are instructions on how to get that through candying.

Hmm candied pepper cheese cake, I should try that some time sounds good.

Followed your recipe, the Jalapenos turned out great. Mama's not happy about the smell in the house (she was gone when I did them) or that I have to buy her a new pot... Oh well. Guess I needed another pot for doing my peppers anyway. :-)

I didnt candy my Jala's to long just till they softened a little bit and jarred hot - I ate 3 qts in a month - they keep nice heat - I added a bit of cayenne. Nice crunch and mix with anything or as a condiment on sandwiches or grilled meats

Ah, okies. They are not as well preserved that way. It's about as stable as jelly, or jam. I normally fully candy them. They take less space, and last longer. Though if you want them "soft, and puffy" you need to rehydrate them a bit.
