Honey Glazed Carrots, because sometimes you want something to make you feel good with minimal effort. These little babies are so good with just about anything or by themselves as a snack. They are delicious strait off the stove, but can also be served cold as part of a romantic picnic. The uses for this simple yet elegant dish are endless.
You will needed: 2 cups fresh carrots, or 1 can of drained carrots; 3 tablespoons butter; 3 tablespoons honey. Yep, that’s it!
*If you are using canned carrots, skip the next couple of steps and go strait to the glaze*
Take your cut carrots and place them in a medium sized sauce pan. I used a french fry cutter to cut these carrots since they were so large; plus I thought it added a little something to the dish 🙂
Cover the carrots with water, about half way up the pan and place on medium to medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes, until they are just fork tender.
Once the carrots are fork tender, remove them from the heat and drain the water. Place carrots back into pan.
**The Glaze 🙂 **
Once the carrots are cooked and drained, add 3 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of honey; or equal parts butter and honey.
Just look at this yumminess!
Place the pan back onto the stove over medium-low heat and bring back to a simmer. Let carrots and glaze simmer until the liquid reduces to a thin sticky glaze that coats the carrots. About 10 minutes. Remove from stove and serve.
