Honey Glazed Carrots

Honey Glazed Carrots

Diana Rattray
These nicely seasoned carrots are quick and easy to prepare, and they make a great side dish for a big family meal or holiday dinner.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds baby carrots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper or chopped parsley, for garnish


Rinse carrots under cold water and put in a medium saucepan. Cover with water and add salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and continue cooking for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.

In a saute pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add honey and brown sugar and cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Add the lemon juice and gently stir in carrots, coating well. Continue heating, gently stirring, until carrots are hot and glazed. Serve immediately garnished with freshly ground pepper or chopped parsley, if desired.

Serves 8.

Awesome taste!, Member principal2008

Delicious carrots...however, I used less honey- about 2 tbsp. and that was just right.
