✨ RECIPE NOTES ✨
- Chilli: Use as much or as little as you can handle; 1 tsp makes for a mild to medium honey. We like it hot so we tend to use two. Be mindful that the chilli does mellow out the longer it sits in the honey, so you may be able to go a little heavier on the chilli than you’d think. You can also use fresh chillies chopped up, if you prefer a stronger chilli flavour alongside the heat.
- Storage: Store this in an airtight jar in a cool, dark place for up to 3 weeks. If using fresh chillies, store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
