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. Source:, October 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place carrots in a high-sided skillet and add water to cover by about 1/4 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.

  • 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.
