Sweet Pickled Jalapenos

There are many candied jalapeno recipes out there but my usual practice is to use half the sugar the recipes call for, and half of that I sub a granulated sweetener like Splenda. (If a recipe calls for 6 cups of sugar, I use 1-1/2 c sugar and 1-1/2 c sweetener.) I am not after sticky sweet pickles. There are a few serrano peppers in with this last batch to give them more bite.
