Apple and Honey Glazed Baby Carrots

A great simple side dish that's good any time of year. The liquid is cooked down to a flavorful glaze that tastes great on pork chops or ham. endless possibilities! The carrots should be partially steamed or 'cooked' so they are tender but still firm.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots to the skillet and simmer about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add apple juice, honey, and dill. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer about 15 minutes or until carrots are tender and liquid is reduced to a glaze, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Great side dish. I halved the recipe for 2 of us, but wish I had made more. The liquid took a little longer for me to get to the glaze consistency but was quite yummy when it was finished. I would think that adding a little bit of fresh mint would be good with these too. Thanks 2Bleu for a nice and easy side dish.

Great side dish! A little sweet and a little tang! I did half of the sauce with only 20 carrots and cooked it down. We love cooked carrots and this was no exception! Thanks, 2Bleu!

This was just ok. I would have definitely used more than 20 carrots, as there was a lot of liquid. I thought it was a little sweet.
