Jalapeños (cowboy candies) are spicy food’s secret weapon. They don’t look too unpretentious – just sparkling jalapeños – but their sweetness and saltiness numbers are impeccable. In fact, they make up one of the great secret ingredients in barbecue sauces. This sugar-coated jalapeno barbecue sauce rises in the sweet heat with the mellow sweetness of molasses and the aroma of fresh apple.
But in fact, any barbecue sauce can be made better. It gets warmer (and hotter) by adding some cowboy candy. Finely chop or mince and try adding to your favorite sauce. Try using it as a marinade for pork sauce or as a ladle.
