aisling larkin hot honey
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 340 g honey
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp fermented hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chilli flakes, optional


  • Add the honey, onion powder, garlic powder, hot sauce and dried chilli flakes if using to a small saucepan, stir, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  • Simmer (don’t boil!) the mixture for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Then remove the hot honey sauce from the heat and stir in the apple cider vinegar.
  • Allow it to cool down, and transfer it to a sterilized jar. Enjoy!


Store the hot honey in a sterilized jar in a cool, dark cupboard for 3 months.
If you use fresh chillies, I aim to use it within 1-2 weeks (up to a month if you've strained out the chillies) and keep it stored in the fridge.
Note that honey will thicken when chilled, so bring it back to room temperature before using it (or pop it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds).
