Are you a fan of the famous Mike’s Hot Honey, but wishing you could make it yourself instead of forever running to the store to get your fix? Look no further! I’ve got you covered with this easy and delicious copycat recipe that you can whip up in no time.
What ingredients do you ned to make Hot Honey?
- Raw Honey
- Crushed Peppers
- Apple Cider Vinegar
To start, you’ll need a few simple ingredients that you probably already have lying around in your pantry. Grab 2 cups of raw honey, 1 tablespoon of crushed peppers, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and head on over to the stove.
In a medium saucepan, add all of the ingredients and give them a good stir. Then, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, and let it cook for a few minutes until everything is well combined.
Once your kitchen is filled with the delicious scent of sweet honey and spicy peppers, it’s time to let the mixture cool to room temperature. This is an important step, as you don’t want to store hot or warm honey, as it can quickly spoil.
Once cooled, transfer the mixture to a glass container and strain out any large pieces of crushed red peppers if you prefer a smoother texture. Store your homemade Mike’s Hot Honey in an airtight container to keep it fresh for up to three months.
Now that you have your very own jar of this delicious gold in your hands, what can you do with it? Well, the possibilities are endless! Try it in my Hot Honey Salmon recipe or pour it over some hot biscuits or toast for a sweet and spicy breakfast, or even drizzle it over some pizza for a little extra kick.
