Equipment

  • Saute Pan

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Carrots, cut into even 1 ½-inch pieces
  • Water
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard (I like stone-ground mustard for texture, but any type will work)
  • 1 Tablespoon Red or White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Spread carrots out in an even layer in a saute pan. Place over medium-high heat and add water until the tops of the carrots are just barely covered with water. Sprinkle salt over top.
  • Bring to a simmer and simmer, shaking the pan gently every few minutes, until the water has cooked off and the carrots are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. (If the water cooks off before the carrots are tender, add a bit more water and continue simmering as long as needed.)
  • Whisk together honey, mustard, vinegar, and olive oil.
  • Pour honey mixture over carrots and stir for 1 minute until sauce coats carrots.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

Kosher Salt - I use Morton’s Kosher Salt to test recipes. If using table salt, reduce by about half. If using Diamond Kosher Salt, increase by about 25%. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to salt, so be sure to taste and adjust as you go.
