Bread and Butter Jalapenos

This was my first year to can these. They are HOT but have that bread and butter taste, too, that cools them down. Even NON bread and butter lovers liked these. I had a bumper crop of jalapenos and serranos this year and put them to good use. I got 10 pints and had to make 2.5 times the brine.

Bread and Butter Jalapenos
4 lbs jalapeno peppers
2 lbs onions
3 cups vinegar
2 cups sugar
2 Tbs mustard seed
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp celery seed
1 tsp ginger
Wash and cut jalapenos and onions into thin slices and cold pack into jars (I would suggest a pair of rubber gloves for handling jalapenos, personal experience!).
Place remaining ingredients in large saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour hot mixture into jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Remove air bubbles. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Yield: about 7 Pints.
