Anya's Immune-Boosting Chili

Raw Honey can add flavor AND health benefits to your chili.

Most people wouldn't put health and chili in the same sentence, but it's actually not as far-fetched as you may think if you use our Fermented Honey Sauces in your soup base!

Raw honey has so many wonderful health benefits. It offers a staggering amount of nutritional value. Aside from various nutrients, like riboflavin, folate, betaine, manganese, potassium, copper, zinc, calcium, magnesium, selenium, fluoride and phosphorus, honey is loaded with antioxidants, which can lessen the risk of cancer. It also lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and generally reduces inflammation. I mean...that's pretty frickin' healthy!

Check out our killer chili recipe below.

Because we like a little kick to our chili, we're going to use the Organic Jalapeño Honey Sauce, but our Organic Onion or Organic Garlic will work just as well, too!
