What is hot honey

What is hot honey made of?

Hot honey is a brilliantly simple combination of honey and chile peppers. The honey is infused with dried chile peppers—see below for a basic recipe on how to DIY the process—to create a perfectly sweet, spicy, and all around stellar topping for pretty much any dish you’re serving.

Is hot honey spicy?

Well, it’s mainly the combination of sweet and spicy that’s just perfect. Not just flavor-wise, but also because of the slightly cooling function of sweet stuff like honey. Also, hot honey is not super spicy and it is very versatile.

Why is hot honey so popular?

The sweetness of honey balances out the heat of the peppers, making it a popular addition to dishes like fried chicken, pizza, and even cocktails. One reason for hot honey’s popularity is its versatility in the kitchen. It can be used as a dipping sauce, glaze, marinade, or even drizzled over ice cream.
