Mama’s Favorite

Whether we admit it or not, there’s always a favorite. This is especially true when it comes to Southern ingredients. Southern cooks are famous for their “secret” ingredients and their uncompromising demand for particular brand or ingredient come Hellman’s or high water. Since you’re a favorite, we’ll let you in on the secret. Allow us to introduce you to the South’s favorite ingredients.

AR’S HOT SOUTHERN HONEY

AR’s Hot Southern Honey is a unique fusion of fresh red chilies with honey produced in Virginia. Drizzle it on yogurt, vegetables, fried chicken or white pizza! Add it to a marinade for chicken, pork or beef. Whisk it into dressings. Use it as a sauce for desserts. We recently used it to make a soothing winter cocktail, The Fire Pit.
