  • 400 g of baby carrots washed
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 30 g of butter
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary leaves picked and chopped
  • A good handful of ice
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Put your carrots in a large pot, add enough cold water to cover the carrots, then add a good pinch of salt. Get the pot on the stove then begin to bring up to a boil.
  2. Get a large bowl of cold water then add your ice.
  3. Once the water has come to boil, continue to boil the carrots for about 4½ minutes. Drain the carrots then transfer them to the ice cold water to refresh them. After about a minute or 2, drain them again then set aside (make sure you don't leave the carrots in the water for too long, otherwise they will start to lose their flavour and nutrients).
  4. Get a frying pan, on medium-high heat, then add your butter and honey. Once the butter and honey start to bubble, add the rosemary and simmer it in that syrupy mixture for about a minute.
  5. Next, add your carrots and spend another minute tossing/stirring them in the honey syrup mixture. 

  6. Transfer the carrots to a plate, then spoon the honey syrup from the pan over the carrots. Finish the dish by sprinkling over some sesame seeds and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • You can boil and refresh the carrots in advance, then you can glaze them just before you are about to serve. This can make your life easier if you are going to cook something else with these carrots.
  • Remember, don't worry too much about peeling or topping and tailing the baby carrots. Just make sure they are washed.
