Move over Mike’s Hot Honey and Bees Knees Spicy Honey, you can make your own chile-infused honey. It’s only the hottest new condiment, that’s all. Drizzle it over pizza, ribs, chicken, fruit, and even vanilla ice cream.

Your chile-infused honey would be great on this Roasted Pepper and Spicy Sausage Grilled Pizza recipe.

  • Yield: 1 cup

Ingredients (2)

  • 3 fresh Thai or Fresno chile, sliced
