Bright and fresh, these candied carrots have just a hint of sweetness from the honey and citrus. This one-pan dish is quick and easy to make, but also has such a pretty presentation that it works both as an entertaining-worthy or weeknight side dish. Look for carrots that are similar in size so they cook evenly.

  • 2 pounds medium-size multi-colored carrots, peeled and tops trimmed
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (from 1 orange)

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place carrots in a high-sided skillet and add water to cover by about ¼ inch. Bring to boil over medium-high; cook until just tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Drain carrots in a large colander and rinse with cold water.
  2. Add honey, butter, orange juice and thyme leaves to skillet; bring mixture to a simmer over medium-high; add carrots and toss to coat. Cook, tossing gently, until honey mixture has reduced and carrots are coated and glazed, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with salt and pepper, tossing gently to coat. Place carrots on a serving plate and drizzle with any remaining sauce. Serve immediately.
