I could be accused of being rather obsessed with jalapeños. I certainly cook with them a lot – here are all my low carb jalapeño recipes – everything from soup to deviled eggs to stuffed chicken! This is partly because I love spicy food, and partly because I grow jalapeños at home!

However, this recipe is the first time I've played around with making them sweet. And they are seriously good! So give them a try, and keep reading for ideas on how to enjoy them!

How to Make Low Carb Candied Jalapeños

Remove the stalks from the jalapeños and discard. The peppers I had were huge! Slice the remaining jalapeños.

In a saucepan, add granular sweetener, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, celery seed, and a good grind of salt and pepper. For the sweetener I used classic Lakanto – you can get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC. It's a monkfruit and erythritol blend – which is better than using 100% erythritol because it is prone to crystallizing, which is not what you want for this recipe!

Bring to the boil, and continue to cook until the sweetener has dissolved. Add the jalapeños, stir, and cook at a rapid simmer for five minutes.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the peppers from the pan, and transfer them into a storage jar. Continue to cook the liquid for another few minutes until it has reduced down and turned syrupy. 

Pour the syrup over the jalapeños, then let cool.

Can this be properly canned? I make cowboy candy and love that I can can a bunch for use later. Can I go the same with these?

I haven't tried but pretty sure it would work!

How long does this last on the counter? And if you refrigerate it, does it last longer?

I had these for a week on the counter - might have lasted longer but they had all been eaten! I think they'd be better at room temp though, I'm thinking that the sweetener might crystallize if you put it in the fridge. Next time I make them I'll do an A/B test!
