If you like your sweet with a little heat, your life will be greatly improved by making homemade hot honey a pantry staple. It’s spicy enough to give your favorite foods a kick, but not so spicy it hurts. You can put it on pizza, fried chicken, toast, and even into cocktails (my favorite application). And with the Anova Precision Oven’s sous vide mode (sans steam) and included food probe, you can make it quickly and easily without scorching your honey. It’s basically a quick infusion, though the cook time is approximate and will vary depending on the pan or dish you use. The red pepper flakes added at the end will continue to release a little heat into the honey, and will save guests from accidentally pouring it into their tea.
Note: The honey should be stored in the refrigerator and used within 4 days to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
