Wash jalapenos and cut the top/stem off. If you want you can core them and tap them on a cutting board a few times to remove some seeds to reduce the heat a little.Consider using food safe gloves when handling the jalapenos.
Cut jalapenos into rounds about 1/4" thick.
Put sugar, vinegar, and spices in a pot large enough to hold them AND the jalapenos and bring to a boil.
Put the jalapenos in the pan and bring to a simmer.
Simmer for about 4 to 5 minutes. The color of the jalapenos will change to a yellow green.
Fill your jars with jalapenos and enough liquid to cover them, let cool and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
