Honey Balsamic Carrots
This is a good side dish that goes with just about anything, at least it does for me.
It's easy to prepare and I had everything in the house so no running to the store.
Recipe adapted from budget bytes
1-2 pound carrots
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt & pepper
2 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cover a baking sheet with aluminium foil
Peel carrots and cut into one inch pieces
Add the olive oil to a medium size bowl and add the carrots. Toss carrots in the olive oil and make sure all are coated.
Spread carrots onto the foil lined baking sheet. Make sure they don't overlap.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 40 minutes. Halfway through toss carrots. You want them to be brown on both sides.
The last ten minutes the carrots are in the oven start the glaze.
Add the balsamic vinegar and the honey in a small pot. Simmer for 10 minutes or until it becomes thick. Once it has thicken, turn off the heat under the pot and add the butter to the balsamic/honey mixture and stir the butter until it melts.
Coat the carrots when taken out of the oven and still on the pan and toss to coat.
Place carrots in a serving dish and enjoy.
