Which Honey To Choose

There are so many ways to use honey, but dipping sauces and spreads with honey have been around for centuries.

Due to its consistency, honey is an ideal ingredient for glazing certain types of meat because it can be used as an emulsifier in sauces and dips.

Honey has a sweet and sticky taste, but different types have different flavors. Here are some that will go well with Sriracha:

  • Honey clover is a mild honey that will sweeten but not overwhelm your recipe. Use clover honey to create well balanced honey Sriracha sauce.

  • This type of honey can vary widely depending on the flowers the bees were drawing nectar from. It is great for honey-Sriracha sauce, as well as honey-mustard sauce.

  • Honey made from alfalfa blossoms has a mildly sweet taste and a light taste.

Bakers Special Honey also has an amber color and rich flavor, making it a popular ingredient in BBQ sauces.

The Ingredients

Using ingredients you probably already have, you can make the honey Sriracha sauce in a few minutes.

  • You must use butter in order for the sauce to have a rich butter flavor. Without it, the sauce will not taste the same.

  • The key ingredient here is Sriracha. Depending on how spicy you like your sauce, use less or more.

  • Adding honey will mellow out the spicy flavor, and you can use as much or as little as you like.

  • Lime juice – Lime juice is used to brighten up the sauce. It would be too heavy without lime juice.

  • You can add soy sauce if you want to add extra umami and saltiness.
