  • 1 lb. carrots I use rainbow carrots
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey I use orange blossom honey
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat add butter. Once the butter has melted add the carrots cook for about two minutes. Then add the orange juice, honey, salt, and cover with a lid. Turn to coat the carrots every 5-10 minutes. Cook the carrots until they are fork tender (about 25 minutes – depending on the size of the carrots). If the glaze starts to reduce too much, add a little more orange juice.

Recipe Notes

  • For the carrots I use rainbow carrots, because they are colorful, and look beautiful. But you can use any carrots you like. 
  • For the honey, I use orange blossom honey, but you can use any honey you prefer.
