  • 2 tsp orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  • Add carrots to a medium pot with 3 cups of water over medium high heat.  Allow water to come to a boil and cook until tender when pierced (about 8-10 minutes).  Drain water.
  • Next add butter, honey, brown sugar, orange juice and vanilla stirring to coat tender carrots in pot.
  • Cook for an additional 5-6 minutes, occasionally stirring to coat the carrots.  Once the carrots are glazed perfectly then season with salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with parsley and serve.



  • You can cut the carrots in different ways as well.  You can dice them into smaller pieces and glaze as well.
  • You can also play with the ratios of the brown sugar and honey to suit your sweetness level.  You can also replace honey with real maple syrup.
