Honey Glazed Carrots Recipe
So what do you need to get started? Just 3 ingredients! See the recipe card below for the full recipe!
- CARROTS – any carrots will do. We used baby carrots. You can also cut up larger carrots. Rainbow carrots, if you can find them, would make a beautiful presentation. Just make sure they are all the same size for even cooking.
- BUTTER – we used unsalted butter. But using salted butter could also work to balance out the sweetness of the honey.
- HONEY – don’t have honey? You could also sub for real Maple Syrup. I’m talking about the REAL stuff here!
- PARSLEY (OPTIONAL) – garnish with parsley to give it a splash of color and flavor just before serving.
What Are The Best Carrots To Cook?
As I mentioned above, you can really use any carrot. We used baby carrots and they worked great! If you are buying whole carrots, just make sure they aren’t too thick or you will need to increase your cooking time. You can always cut them in half lengthwise. It’s up to you whether or not you want to peel them. I like to peel mine.
But the most important thing is that all the carrots are the same size.
How To Store Honey Glazed Carrots
If you have leftovers ( you probably won’t!). You can store these carrots in an airtight container in your refrigerator. They should be good in your fridge for up to 3 days. Reheating in the microwave is fine.
You can freeze these carrots in a freezer bag. Just allow to fully cool before putting in your freezer. They should be good in there for about 3 months.
