I'm addicted to baby cut carrots. I love their sweetness, the crunch, and they make a tasty, healthy snack, or a quick side dish that goes with just about any meal. They are delicious cooked tender crisp, or even cooked until completely tender. I enjoy them tender crisp, but others in my family prefer them very tender. However you like them, a glaze of butter and honey just makes them that much better! Give them a try.
HONEY and BUTTER GLAZED BABY CUT CARROTS
1 pound baby cut carrots
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
pinch of salt
chopped parsley for garnish, if desired
In a large saucepan, add water to about 1/2 inch depth. Bring water to a boil and add a couple pinches salt. Add the carrots to the pan, and bring back to a boil. Lower heat and cover. Simmer for about 5 - 1o minutes, depending on how well cooked you want the carrots. Use a fork to poke the carrots to test for doneness. When done to your liking, drain the water from the carrots. Over low heat add the butter and honey to the carrots and simmer a minute or two until carrots are glazed. Serve hot, garnished with parsley. Enjoy!
