    There are so many ways to eat carrots – cooked, sauteed, grilled, roasted, juiced, in smoothies, raw. I don’t remember ever seeing fried carrots though. The people here in the South are known for frying everything, so who knows. So, what is your favorite way to eat carrots?

    • 5-6 large carrots
    • 2 Tbsp honey
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1/2 tsp sea salt
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper
    • parsley for garnish
    1. Wash, peel and cut carrots in about 3 inch long pieces and half lengthwise. And if needed, half the halves again (I hope that makes sense).
    2. Combine olive oil, honey, sea salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss carrots with the honey-olive oil mixture. Spread carrots on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake at 400 F for about 30 minutes.
    3. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve warm.

    Been doing this for 20 years at least, it’s not new or American
    My Nan used to do carrots like this, she grew her own, just washed them, cut em lengthways and put cooking fat on them, salt (no pepper) then covered them in honey
    I still do it the way she did her’s
    Carrots are good for you and rabbits, never seen a rabbit wearing glasses 😄👍

      Yes, I agree with you, this is not an American recipe. People all over the world cook carrots the same way. I had to pick one cuisine, and since I can’t list all countries in the world on the recipe card, I chose to list American since I live in the US. 🙂
      Loved to hear how your Nana used to make honey glazed carrots. Such a wonderful memory!


    Okay, nice for a snack as well


    I love the glossy honey glaze on these roasted carrots! Such a simple side dish to make, and I love how roasting intensifies the flavor of the carrots. These would be so perfect for Easter dinner.
