Pour all ingredients into large pot and cook for 30 minutes.
Pour into pint sized sterile bottles, filling to 3/4 inch from top.
Seal and process in water bath for 30 minutes, starting timer after it starts to boil.

*Original recipe only asked for jalapenos. I added an extra pepper to make it hotter. Add more or less jalapenos to adjust heat.
