This is the hot honey you’ve been searching for. One where the heat stands up to the sweet. Akron Honey harvests raw wildflower honey from their urban apiaries before infusing it with habanero, bringing bright, fruity notes and unmistakable heat to every jar. A drizzle awakens the palate with a perfect interplay of sugar and spice. That’s why it’s an unbeatable pizza topping and a cheese board superstar, particularly with savory Murray’s Parmigiano Reggiano and velvety Fourme d’Ambert.

"Now this is a hot honey! I like it with a blue cheese like Fourme d'Ambert, but you can also drizzle it on your pizza for a real kick."

Raw Honey, Infused with Habanero Chili Peppers
  • Habanero peppers are short and squat, with a thin skin and typically red or orange hue. They are one of the hottest commonly available chiles, and while they are quite spicy, they also carry a bright, fruity, citrusy flavor.
  • Akron Honey lets habaneros infuse into the honey for several days, allowing the flavor and heat to really develop.
  • A drizzle on crostini smeared with Vermont Creamery’s fresh chèvre makes a simple appetizer that’s tangy, sweet, and spicy.
  • This is a honey to keep stocked in your pantry for culinary adventures as well, from adding to your wing sauce to glazing roasted vegetables to serving with cornbread alongside softened butter.
  • Akron Honey is a black-owned apiary in Akron, Ohio, producing raw wildflower honeys in creative flavors. 
  • The business was started by Brent Wesley, also known as Wesley the Keeper, who began beekeeping in 2013 as it related to his interest in agriculture.
  • He now operates three apiaries across several neighborhoods in Akron—two in formerly blighted vacant lots—harvesting the bees’ surplus in small batches and never blending or mixing batches with honey from other locations or other seasons.
  • For their infused honeys, like hibiscus, habanero, and bourbon barrel, Akron Honey allows the flavor-building ingredients to infuse for several days into their raw honey.
  • To drive home their message of sustainability, they visit P-12 classrooms to share information about beekeeping.
