Sensational alongside plain roast chicken or pork.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook carrots to tender, along with salt and sugar, in enough water to barely cover.
  2. Drain unless you have reduced all the water.
  3. Place butter, dark brown sugar, mustard and honey in heavy saucepan.
  4. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thick and syrupy.
  5. Add cooked carrots and toss to coat them with sauce.
  6. Season to taste (use white pepper instead of black).
  7. Serve hot, sprinkled generously with the chopped parsley.

These carrots are divine! I made this even simpler by using baby carrots and cooking them in the microwave, but made the sauce exactly as written (except using lactose-free margarine). The flavors blend together so well, and the mustard gives it a wonderful zing. We'll be making these frequently!

Wow! I ate one and was hooked. Wonderful flavor. I used 1 T of dijon and it was a perfect balance. Could have eaten the whole batch myself.
