Cut off the stem of the jalapenos and cut them in half lengthwise. For the seasoning syrup, keep the seeds and membranes intact. If not, remove seeds and membranes.
In a saucepan, heat water until almost boiling. Then add the sugar, stirring until the mixture becomes clear.
Add half of the jalapeno peppers and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. The sugar will start to thicken and you can see the color of the peppers change.
Remove syrup from heat. Let cool for 30 to 45 minutes or until cool to room temperature.
Halve the jalapenos. (and seed if included)
