Beekeeping in the cruel, humid Houston summer is an experience: the bee suit, the sweat, the stinging insects, and now- a mask. It’s not for the faint of heart. Neither is this honey: a habanero infusion.
We took dried habaneros and steeped them in our local honey for several months and this is the result. With both habanero honey and beekeeping: when the heat meets the sweet, it makes all the sweat and pain worth it.

Previous incarnations of our hot honey were infused with scorpion peppers from Laughing Frog Farm in Hempstead.
Infused honey is the result of combining honey and high quality dried herbs or other dried ingredients, plus time, love, and patience. Once the desired flavor profile is reached, we carefully strain the added ingredients.
Creamed honey is a “controlled crystallization” that allows for small crystals to make the honey spreadable instead of the larger crystals of solid, unprocessed honey.
