Ingredients 

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon chilli flakes — or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce is optional — I used Franks Red Hot
  • 3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar to cut through the sweetness

Instructions 

  • In a small pan or a small pot on medium low heat add the first three ingredients and give everything a stir. We do not want this mixture to boil by any means we want a very low gentle simmer on it.
  • We just want to infuse and release the heat from the chilli so please do not boil this or take your eyes off of it. Let it gently simmer for 3 to 4 minutes and take it off the heat.
  • Stir in the Apple cider vinegar and let it cool. Store it in a mason jar or any jar you have on hand and leave it in your pantry. This never last long in my house because we go through it fairly quickly but it should last you for months. Enjoy.

Notes

You are more than welcome to leave out the apple cider vinegar it will be delicious without it as well. Feel free to use chopped chillies or habanero peppers and strain out the mixture before it goes into a jar. The hot honey should be stored in a clean glass jar in the pantry. Don’t store it in the fridge as the cool temperature will speed up the crystallization process. If the honey starts to crystalize ( which is normal ) just warm the jar gently in hot water.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
