Our latest obsession is using hot honey in alot of our dishes.  People ask:

Can I make my own Hot Honey?

YES- Hot honey is simple to make – 2 or 3 ingredients – natural honey and dried chili peppers and sometimes a touch of hot sauce.  Your selection of peppers and the quantity used will determine the flavor and heat level.  Some Hot Honey recipes add a touch of hot sauce or apple cider vinegar.

How do I make Hot Honey?

To make Hot honey, you add 1 cup of honey, 2-3 Tbsp of chili flakes, and if desired 1 Tbsp of hot sauce to a small pan- a warm gently until bubbles start appearing at the edge of the pan.  (Do not boil.). Turn off the heat and let the chilis infuse into the honey.  Use a fine mesh sieve to strain your honey, and put into a jar or storage container.
