Angry Honey spices up that sweetness

Bees get agitated when their hives are disturbed, but that’s not why Ryan Silve, 30, and Brian Hourihan, 31, named their bold condiment Angry Honey. Pals since their days at Norwood High School, they infuse organic habanero peppers into raw, unfiltered honey from New England Apiaries in Southwick. “Angry is meant to mean spicy,” says Silve. Sweet and searing, it delivers a punch but won’t leave your mouth ablaze. Drizzled over pizza, wings, and roasted vegetables, a splash in a cocktail, or a spoonful for a dressing or sauce will kick it up a notch or two. The partners have a second version (both $11 for 8 ounces) they named Gets Baked — the honey infused with cinnamon and vanilla — for baking or a cup of tea, or anything that would be enlivened by the spiced syrup. Available at Green T Coffee Shop, 873 South St, Roslindale, 617-390-5777; Good Health Natural Foods-1630 Hancock St, Quincy, 617-773-4925; Bee Charmed Gift Shop & Country Store, 86 Spring St, Bridgewater, 508-807-5293, or e-mail info@angryhoney.co.
