Tips From Margielynn

For the faint heart, you can remove seeds from jalapeños and cut down the amount; reduce amounts of ground red pepper and crushed red pepper, when doing this you may need to cut back on the sugar.

For those that like it hot be a little generous on the heat because it seems to leave the product after canning. Some add as many as 10 jalapeños.

Also, in using the 8 cups of sugar you need the hot peppers to balance out the sweet.
