These honey-glazed carrots are hard to resist, so you may want to make a double batch. From a crunchy snack to a delicious side dish, carrots are a versatile vegetable that can be found in fresh, frozen, and canned form. For this recipe, we use fresh baby carrots. All carrots are an excellent source of antioxidants and one of the richest sources of vitamin A available.

I know carrot is very useful but i did not taste carrot with honey, may be it will like carrot jam, should try, thanks for your article.

Thanks for this article. I'm not a fan of carrots, but I do love honey. My wife loves carrots and not honey. This is an excellent compromise! Great recipe.
