This homemade condiment is just the right mix of hot and sweet. It combines honey with fiery red pepper flakes and hot sauce. It takes no time to make, lasts for months and is a tasty topping for a variety of dishes. I’m a total spice girl, myself, so I love the heat, and enjoy it on a number of dishes, from chicken to veggies to toast and more. Feel free to experiment to find what you love it on best.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes ½ cup
  • • ½ cup honey
  • • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

Mist a small to medium saucepan with oil spray and warm over medium heat. Add honey, red pepper flakes and hot sauce, and stir to combine. When gentle bubbles start to form around the edges, remove from heat and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes (the red pepper flakes will infuse spice into the honey as it sits). Strain honey by pouring it through a mesh colander or strainer. Discard leftover red pepper flakes. 

Use hot honey on chicken, eggs or roasted veggies, spread on toast or even drizzle over ice cream or pizza. You can store leftover honey at room temperature for at least several months (three or more).
