How to Make Hot Honey - Recipe

 How to Make Hot Honey-  Recipe


- 1 cup of raw honey

- 2-3 tablespoons of crushed red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)

- Optional: 1-2 whole dried chili peppers for extra heat


1. Heat the Honey: In a small saucepan, heat the raw honey over low heat until it becomes thin and pourable. Be careful not to boil the honey, as this can affect its flavor.

2. Add the Spices: Once the honey is warmed through, add the crushed red pepper flakes to the saucepan. If you're using whole dried chili peppers, you can add them at this time as well.

3. Infuse the Honey: Stir the honey and pepper flakes together until well combined. Allow the mixture to simmer over low heat for 5-10 minutes to infuse the honey with the spicy flavor of the pepper flakes.

4. Adjust to Taste: Taste the hot honey and adjust the level of spiciness to your liking by adding more pepper flakes if desired. Keep in mind that the heat will intensify as the honey sits.

5. Cool and Strain (Optional): If you prefer a smoother hot honey without pepper flakes, you can strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the solids. This step is optional and depends on your preference.

6. Cool and Store: Once the hot honey has reached your desired level of spiciness, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool slightly. Transfer the hot honey to a clean, airtight jar or bottle for storage.

7. Enjoy: Hot honey can be used as a versatile condiment to add sweet and spicy flavor to a variety of dishes. Drizzle it over fried chicken, pizza, biscuits, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, or roasted vegetables for a delicious kick of heat.

8. Storage: Store the hot honey in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. It will keep for several months at room temperature, or you can refrigerate it for longer shelf life.

Experiment with different types and amounts of chili peppers to customize the heat level and flavor of your hot honey. Enjoy this spicy-sweet condiment as a unique addition to your favorite dishes!
