Honey Glazed Carrots


Every few years my mom would make honey glazed carrots.   It wasn’t often, but when she did it was awesome.   It was the only time I would actually eat carrots.   

I’ve been making these for a few years now and they go great with everything from roast, chicken and turkey, oh and sauerbraten.   

Start off with 2 lbs. of carrots, peeled and chopped.

Cover with water and a big pinch or two of salt.   Bring to a boil and cook till desired doneness.  Drain away the water and then add in the honey (1/2 cup), along with the salt, pepper, cinnamon and onion powder.

Return to the heat and bring this to a boil and cook for another 10 minutes.  

At this point the carrots are done.   You can eat them right away, or because I live to make things ready in advance, these taste even better the next day.  Just reheat and eat.  

Merry Christmas Everyone!

    1. Thank you very much. I wish my mom would actually have a recipe for how she used to make them but she usually just throws things in a pot.
