We've partnered with the Clif Family Winery (yep, the folks behind Clif Bar) to bring you a brand-new Solar Grown Honey collaboration: Cobanero Chili Hot Honey.
We did rounds and rounds of testing (life is hard sometimes) to nail down the perfect balance of fruity heat with the natural sweetness of the raw honey, and we're so excited to share this new collaboration with you.
The honey is gathered from hives placed on a solar farm that offsets the energy use of Clif Bar bakery and then combined with our Cobanero Chili Flakes. It's left to infuse for 2 weeks in a room that's heated to 95°F, the same internal temperature of the beehive, before the chili flakes are strained out.
The result is a beautifully balanced, spicy-sweet honey that belongs on cheese plates and slices of pizza, as a glaze for salmon or baked sweet potatoes, or on chicken wings and buffalo cauliflower, just to name a few.
- Origin: Forest City, Iowa, USA
- Process: Honey is gathered from hives, combined with our Cobanero Chili Flakes and left to infuse for 2 weeks before being strained out
- Ingredients: Honey, Cobanero Chili Flakes
The honey is called "solar grown" because it comes from a solar farm in Iowa. Since there's plenty of space under and around the solar panels, the Clif Family added pollinator-friendly plants and beehives to the land.
The bees help develop these flowering landscapes that provide nesting habitats and diverse food sources for wild bees, butterflies and other wildlife.
Planting pollinator-friendly habitat under these solar farms, along with the beehives, helps control storm water, improves the soil and provides diverse food sources and nesting habitat for the surrounding wildlife.

I am addicted to the Solar Grown Hot Cobanero Chili-HONEY!! I want this to be sold in Very large jars as an option!! This ups the ante on my morning pot of chai, totally sublime. Food ****!!. The problem is I run out of honey way too fast!! yes I add conanero Hot chil to the pot of chai now with local honey, and while that is still excellent, have the honey infused with the Cobanero is a different experience!
Delicious! I have loved all the spices I've ordered.
Love your honey, I used it on my toast, fruits, chicken. Wonderful
