  • Wash, deseed and dice the jalapeños. You might want to wear gloves when deseeding the jalapeños to avoid irritation if you rub your eyes with your hands afterwards. Be careful to wash your hands well after handling the jalapeños.

  • Add the raisins and sugar to the smooth mixture in the pot. Put the pot over medium heat until it begins to boil. Let it boil a couple minutes and then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Continue simmering about 10 minutes until you get the right consistency (it should drip thickly from the back of a spoon). Note the time is approximate. Don't overcook or it will become too hard. Remember that it will thicken more when it cools.
