Our Best Selling Jar

Your new favourite star in the kitchen. Add them to your favourite dishes, from tacos and sandwiches to omelettes and pizzas. They'll give you a perfect blend of sweetness and heat. Our unique preparation method involves slow-cooking fresh jalapeños in a sweet, tangy syrup until they're perfectly candied.

Want it spreadable instead? Try the relish version.

Handmade on Salt Spring Island

Every batch uses the freshest jalapeños and the best ingredients. This also means a natural variation in heat level from making it in small batches. Still, you should always find the heat enjoyable, not overpowering. Easy to serve folks who may not be as crazy about all things hot sauce as you.

TASTE PROFILE

A vibrant blend of spicy and sweet, balanced to elevate what you're eating it with. Thanks to the candying process, you'll get that crisp texture of fresh jalapeños while the initial zest moves to a warm sweetness.

Small batches of fresh peppers mean the heat level can vary from batch to batch. Still, you should always find the heat enjoyable, not overpowering. This makes it easy to serve folks who may not be as crazy about all things hot sauce as you.

Candied Jalapeños have my heart

I was first introduced to these during a visit to Sechelt, and I instantly fell in love. As soon as I got back to Sask, I've ordered a fair amount of jars and even shared them with my neighbor. Seriously, hands down, the most delicious jalapeños ever; what's even better is that every jar is different (some are spicier than others).

Thanks for the love Bryanna, love this review so much! Two of the best ways to discover new brands and foods, travelling, and getting a gift from a friend. :)

Wow….delicious!

The Candied Jalapeño’s are absolutely fabulous! The taste is sweet/hot! Great combination! Included them in home made nachos!

Thanks Deborah, we love them on nachos! One of the best ways to enjoy them for sure. Thanks for the love!

Candied Jalapenos

These aren’t as hot and spicy as expected. Nice touch though.

Hey Helene, sorry you didn't get as much heat as you'd like! Because they're made in small bactches, not every batch or jar is the same heat level. That said, none of our products are really crazy hot, we prefer to shine through the flavour and unique combinations. You might like to try our Candied Jalapeño Relish, depending on how you were using the jalapeños, because you can spread it more evenly/scoop out the seeds a little easier to get the heat you're looking for. Glad you enjoyed them anyway! :)

Candied jalapeños/jalapeños relish

I love these two products. The relish is amazing on many things but on a burger you can not beat the flavour. Salt Springs has many tasty products.

Thanks Linda, we agree, it's a such a great addition to burgers and others. Thanks for sharing!
