  • 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 2 tbsp of turmeric heaping
  • 1 tbsp. of crushed red pepper
  • 2 tbsp. of white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp of Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp of onion powder
  • 1 tbsp of garlic powder

How to Make Honey Gold Sauce Step by Step: 

Step 1: Bring a small frying pan. Add 4 tbsp of butter over low heat. The butter shouldn’t get browned. 

Step 2: When the butter melts, add 1 cup of hot sauce and stir until wholly mixed up.

Step 3: Pour 1/2 cup of honey, and stir for 2 minutes. 

Step 4: Then you need to add white wine vinegar. After stirring for a few seconds, you will notice the odor. 

Step 5: Now time to add the spices. Add turmeric heaping, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, red pepper, salt, and black pepper. 

Step 6: Stir them until they are well-combined. Then add sugar as per your taste. Sugar will take time to dissolve, but you must not increase the heat. 

Taste the sauce, if anything is missing add up. I wrote the recipe as per my taste. If you want it sweeter, you can add up more honey. If you want it spicier, you can add up a jalapeno pepper powder as well. You will taste a sweet flavor along with the strong flavor of hot sauce foamed with butter.
