  • Heat the honey and chili in a sauce pan over medium low heat until you start to see small bubbles forming
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the apple cider vinegar.
  • Let it sit for 5 minutes then strain it into a glass jar.
  • Serve drizzled over sweet or savory dishes.


  1. Don't let the honey boil or it will get too thick.
  2. If the honey start to crystallize, you can heat it in a warm water bath or just the microwave too.
  3. You can use other types of chilies - dried or fresh. If you use fresh, you need to store it in the fridge to keep the chilies from spoiling.
  4. If you want it to have a more savory quality, add ¼ to ½ teaspoon salt.
  5. Use hot sauce (like Louisiana hot sauce) in place of the vinegar if you prefer to add a little extra heat.
  6. Use lemon or lime juice in place of the vinegar if you want a slightly more citrusy quality.
