How to make a delicious hot honey sauce.
- This recipe is highly adaptable and is not restricted to a specific type of ingredient.
- This hot honey drizzle can be done over the stovetop or microwave oven.
- Allow the honey to warm up at a low temperature. Heating too much beyond 98°F causes the honey to lose essential components.
- The microwave is a quick option to make this hot honey sauce, but I would highly recommend using the stovetop method as it is more reliable and has more control over the heat when handling the honey.
- If you prefer, you may strain the red pepper flakes when the honey is still warm. And later store them in an airtight container.
The ingredients needed
Honey. The base ingredient. The regular honey that generally you use in your kitchen works perfectly. However, you may also use organic honey, or manuka honey, which also works great.
For vegan choice, you may try maple syrup or agave nectar(though I have not tried this vegan option, but theoretically, it should work well). If you have been attempting this vegan way, let us know your feedback through your valuable comments.
Red chili flakes. The only ingredients to spice up the sauce. I have used roasted red pepper flakes, for their intense flavors and their depth of heat.
How to make the hot honey sauce
Add the honey to the glass mixing bowl and add the red pepper flakes. And set aside.
Fill a saucepan with water halfway through. Bring it to a rolling boil and place the glass bowl over it. Ensure the bottom of the glass bowl does not touch the water level.
And now, place the glass bowl filled with honey. Allow the honey to heat using the steam from the saucepan.
Stir continuously with a spatula for about 1-2 minutes or until the honey’s texture slightly changes. This double-boil warming procedure allows the honey to be infused with a rich peppery flavor.
Remove from the heat and allow the honey to cool to room temperature.
Transfer it to an airtight glass container and ENJOY!!
Best to serve with
This hot honey sauce could work like a charm wherever the regular honey is used.
Fruits and veggies. For Grilled veggies or roasted vegetables, a tablespoon of hot drizzle sauce does wonders.
In the sauce. Mix it with other premade sauces like sriracha sauce, and hot sauce and give it an instant face lift.
Cereal and drink. Stir in your breakfast cereal or drink like this coconut milk chia pudding. And enjoy!
How to store?
Room temperature. The honey has antibacterial factors that make it store for months at room temperature.
Practically, I highly recommend using hot honey sauce within 3 to 4 weeks to avoid human errors or contaminations.
Refrigerator. You may also store it in the fridge for four to five weeks.
