Hot pepper honey is easy to make and a real treat!

Total time

0 minutes


  • 1 cup honey
  • about 3 tsp crushed red peppers (about 5 small dried peppers)


  1. Put the honey and the peppers in a double boiler or a glass bowl or measuring cup over a saucepan of boiling water.
  2. Mix the peppers into the honey and heat for several minutes until the temp is about 150. A thermometer isn't necessary, but you don't want the honey to get so hot that you destroy the beneficial enzymes. Turn off the heat and let the honey sit over the water and steep for about 10 minutes.
  3. While the honey is still warm, strain it into a clean jar or jars.
