Ingredient Substitutions and Recipe Variations

  • Maple Syrup: If you prefer a different sweetener, consider substituting the honey and maple syrup or agave. This would make the recipe vegan.
  • Herbs: Substitute the basil for other fresh herbs like oregano or thyme for a different flavour profile.
  • A different type of Onion: Add a burst of freshness with chives or finely chopped spring onions as an alternative to shallots.
  • Red Pepper Flakes and Dried Chilli Flakes: If you do not have fresh chillies, you can use chilli flakes. You can also adjust the heat level by experimenting with different types of chilli flakes or powders. Smoked paprika can also be used for a subtle smoky flavour.
  • Sesame Seeds: Enhance the nutty undertones by adding toasted sesame seeds.
  • Hot Sauce: Feel free to add in some of your favourite hot sauce, whether it’s a smoky chipotle, or sriracha.

Top tip

Maximise the flavours in your Hot Honey by leaving the garlic, chillies, herbs, and onions in the jar. Allowing these aromatic ingredients to continue mingling in the honey creates a more intense flavour profile.
