Candied Jalapenos

From Kristi's Kitchen
1 pint jar La Costena brand pickled jalapenos -this brand is just pickled and nothing added
8 oz. crushed pineapple with juice
2-3 tbsp. organic raw honey OR coconut palm crystals (maybe a bit more for balance)
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon celery seed OR 2 tablespoons finely diced celery
1 teaspoon mustard seed OR 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
-Drain the peppers of their juice and dump into sauce pot
-Stir in pineapple, sweetener and spices
-Bring to a slow boil and simmer for 15 minutes
-Pour into sterilized mason jar, lid and store in refrigerator
If making multiple recipes, you can use traditional canning method and store jars in the pantry for up to a year
This is delicious as a chili garnish or poured over organic cream cheese and served with your favorite dipper - a perfect party appetizer and great for holiday gatherings!

SIDENOTE:  -you can pickle your own jalapenos... its simple to do -maybe that will be tomorrow's post...
