Honey Glazed Carrots with Thyme

A quick and easy way to enjoy spring carrots.

Ingredients:
1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced into coins or sticks
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Method:
1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the sliced carrots and cook for about 5-6 minutes or until just tender but still slightly crisp. Drain the carrots and set aside.

2. In a large skillet or sauté pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cooked carrots to the skillet, stirring to coat them evenly with butter. Drizzle the honey over the carrots and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3-4 minutes or until the carrots are glazed and caramelized slightly.

3. Sprinkle the thyme leaves over the glazed carrots, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine. Cook for another minute to allow the flavors to meld together. Remove the skillet from heat and transfer the honey glazed carrots to a serving dish.
