what you'll need

  • 1 lb carrots sliced at a long diagonal
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch cinnamon ground

let's do it

  • Place the carrots into a medium-sized skillet and add just enough water to completely cover the carrots. Heat the skillet over a medium-high flame and bring to a boil.
  • Once the water has begun to boil, reduce the heat to medium-low then simmer until the carrots are very tender but not mushy—the amount of time this takes varies based on how thick the baby carrots are. (Test the carrots occasionally by piercing one of the largest pieces with the tip of a paring knife. If the knife pierces it easily, the carrots are done).
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and drain off any remaining water, leaving the carrots in the pan.
  • Return the skillet to the heat, which should be set to medium-low. Add butter, honey, salt and pepper to the carrots. Gently coat the carrots with the mixture and cook until it has formed a syrupy consistency that glazes the carrots—it’ll only take a few minutes.
  • Remove from heat when the glaze has formed. Sprinkle lightly with a pinch of cinnamon then stir once again.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!
