It's Hot Stuff, Honey!

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ThatBobbieGirl

A hot, spicy honey spread, wonderful on hot buttered toast, english muffins, or on fresh-baked biscuits with dinner. A nice gift item for lovers of HOT STUFF! the standing time is not included in the "time to prepare" estimates.

  1. Combine honey and pepper flakes in a heavy saucepan.
  2. Warm over low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Cover and turn off heat.
  4. Let stand 1 or 2 hours.
  5. Strain through fine sieve, and pour into sterilized jars with tightly fitting lids.
  6. Store at room temperature.
  7. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled, or four-tupled or more-- just keep the ratio of 1 teaspoon pepper for each cup of honey.
