Honey-Whiskey Carrots

August 25, 2012

One ingredient I use whenever possible is honey. North River Organics jars a mean unpasturized wildflower honey, and their whole operation is pesticide free. Yet another reason to love this area.

Here is a simple side dish of fresh garden carrots roasted with honey, Canadian whiskey, and thyme.


Serves 4


• 6 medium carrots
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
• 1 tablespoon whiskey
• a few sprigs of thyme
• salt + ground black pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 450° F.
Cut the carrots in half lenghtwise, then again in quarters.
Place them in a baking pan or bakeware.
Pour over the honey, oil, whiskey, thyme and season with salt and pepper.
Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, giving them a shake half way through the cooking time.
Serve right away.

Even for a person who doesn’t care for his vegetables, this is an exceptional dish!
