Sweet honey, tangy vinegar and rich butter provide a balanced glaze for carrots. This dish makes a colorful accompaniment to roast beef or chicken.
1 pound baby carrots or young carrots with green tops, peeled and greens trimmed to 1/2 inch
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
Chopped flat-leaf parsley for garnish
Steam carrots over an inch or two of boiling water until just tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet and stir in honey and vinegar. Add steamed carrots to the skillet and sauté over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until carrots are well glazed, 2 to 4 minutes. Season carrots with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
