Honey Glazed Carrots

Easter will be here in a few short days. I don't know about you, but I'm still working on the menu for our holiday meal. This year I've decided to keep things simple, which is why these honey glazed carrots are absolutely perfect. With only a small handful of ingredients needed for the recipe they come together in no time at all, which means I can spend less time in the kitchen cooking and more time enjoying the day with my family. If you're still looking for an easy side dish to round out your holiday feast, then give these delicious carrots a try.

Honey Glazed Carrots
serves 4 - 6

Ingredients:

½ Cup water
1 pound baby carrots
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon honey
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ginger, ground
½ teaspoon dried parsley

Directions:

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat melt butter, add water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, then add carrots and cook for 6 - 8 minutes.
  • Add honey, sea salt, dried parsley and ginger then continue to cook for an additional 4 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to coat the carrots in glaze. Once carrots are fork tender remove from heat and serve immediately.

Notes:

These carrots are best when served immediately, but you can make them several hours in advance then reheat them just before serving.
