You know just from the label of Geddes Farms Ghost Pepper Honey that it’s something extra special from their product line. Why? Even the bee is sporting a blazing-hot status symbol – a devil’s tail – to remind us that something very, very fiery lives here. Geddes Farms pulls out one of the hottest peppers on the planet to make this sinfully good spicy honey, and if you are into super sweet matched with heat, you owe it to yourself to pick up a jar.
What’s in the jar?
Geddes Farms does things right. They use 100% all-natural raw wildflower honey from the State of Florida and a single super-hot ghost pepper right in the jar. That’s it. No other ingredients. The ghost pepper floats in the honey, cut open to allow its fiery oils to permeate the entire jar.
The flavor – sinfully good honey
We tested Geddes Farms Ghost Pepper Honey alone to get a sense of its total heat and richness and then as a dipping sauce for grilled shrimp to taste it with food. In both cases, it’s exceptionally tasty.
This is top quality honey: thick and rich with a lasting sweetness. It’s a big enough flavor on its own to stand tall against the incredible heat of the ghost pepper (855,000 to 1,041,427 Scoville heat units). They pair to take your taste buds on a surprisingly complex sweet and spicy ride. The ghost pepper heat kicks in quickly, within the first few seconds, and it slowly increases in strength for about 20 seconds before it starts tempering down. You don’t get full ghost pepper heat here – like with any chili pepper sauce, the spiciness is diluted across the entire jar. But it’s still quite the kick and it lasts a good long time.
With grilled shrimp, this honey was perfect. The heat is slightly tempered again with the addition of food, so it becomes very eatable for anyone with an adventurous palate. With its big flavor, we can see Geddes Farms Ghost Pepper Honey working not only as a dipping sauce but also as a marinade or glaze. Their website mentions too drizzling it over brownies which very well may be our next taste-test. It sounds too good not to try.
Geddes Farms Ghost Pepper Honey is one sinfully good jar of spicy and sweet, that’s for sure. Pick up a bottle for yourself from their website. They also carry many non-spicy raw honey flavors that look just as delicious, so check them out while you’re there.
