  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 habanero peppers, quartered


  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Slowly stir sugar into boiling water until sugar is dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Add habanero peppers to sugar-water mixture, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until syrup is thickened and pepper has slightly colored the syrup, about 15 minutes.

  2. Remove saucepan from heat and let syrup cool, about 1 hour. Remove peppers from syrup and store syrup in a glass jar.

Cook's Note:

If you want a spicier syrup let the peppers steep longer.
