This cranberry honey is a versatile spicy, tart, and sweet fermented hot honey, and it’s made with raw honey fermented cranberries and fermented jalapenos. You need fresh cranberries, fermented or fresh jalapenos, and quality raw honey to make these spicy fermented cranberries in honey.


  • Fresh Cranberries
  • Fermented Jalapenos
  • Fresh hot peppers (optional)
  • Raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar


  1. You get to choose how much of this fermented cranberry honey you make. Choose a jar large enough, so that you can make your desired amount while only filling the jar halfway. The more you want to make, the more honey you will need.
  2. Wash your fresh cranberries, and gather your peppers.
  3. Bruise the cranberries slightly, by tampering them with the bottom of a mason jar. Don’t crush them completely, just put a little pressure on them to break the skins.
  4. If you are adding fresh peppers, wash them and slice them.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar and some fermented jalapeno peppers to the bottom of your jar. You can choose how spicy to make this honey, the more peppers you add the hotter it will be. I added 3 tablespoons of fermented jalapenos.
  6. Fill your jar halfway with fresh, washed cranberries. If you are adding fresh hot peppers, add them to the jar.
  7. Slowly pour raw honey over the cranberries and peppers until they are completely covered.
  8. Stir the mixture with a clean spoon. The cranberries will start to float, that’s normal.
  9. Place a tight sealing lid on the jar.
  10. Each day loosen the lid to let any gasses out, the tighten the lid back and flip the jar upside down to coat all the cranberries in honey.
  11. Allow the cranberry hot honey for ferment for 4 to 8 weeks.
  12. It is done when you notice the honey is much darker, very runny, and all the cranberries become darker and wrinkled.


  • you can leave out the peppers completely to make simple honey fermented cranberries.
