The traditional mild variety packs a subtle bite, while the hot has a lingering, full-bodied flame for heat-seeking customers.

Family Recipes Made Better

When sweet is added to heat the heat is softened yet the flavor multiplies. When heat is added to sweet, the sweet elevates to a new dimension. Think honey on your Grandmothers fried chicken and then close your eyes and imagine it drizzled with AR’s (Ames’) Hot Southern Honey…
