The heat is really just a mechanism to help it steep — it’s on pretty low. So you’re definitely not cooking all the flavors out of the honey, which will still definitely bring its very distinct flavor to the table.

These are awesome suggestions. Or even dried mushrooms (e.g., shiitakes), that have been reconstituted in broth. Throw the mushroom “broth” into the rice too. It’d be pure umami deliciousness.

Most likely because of the spice level. But if you can’t take it too spicy, try jalapeño — or if you want to up it (do so at your own risk!), habañero would be good, too.

Definitely not. :)
