  • small pan


  • 1 cup honey of choice
  • 1-3 habaneros I used 3, but we like it pretty spicy. If you like it less spicy, I would go with 1 or 2.


  • Slice habaneros. Don't stress about perfection, just a rouch chop is fine.
  • Add your habaneros and honey to a pan. I left all the seeds in, but you can take them out if you prefer. That will make it milder. It will be strained at the end.
  • Heat over medium heat until it boils. Once it reaches a boil, remove from heat.
  • Allow the honey to cool.
  • Strain the honey to remove the peppers. You can leave the peppers in if you prefer, but I like to strain.
  • That is it!
  • Because we used fresh peppers, I store it in the fridge in an airtight container. It will hold well for at least 3 weeks.
  • That is it! Now, sit back and enjoy!
