How do you make baby carrots?
For this recipe, I used a pound of baby carrots; however, this recipe works well in multiples, so feel free to double or triple the recipe as needed.
To prepare the baby carrots, first, rinse them and place them in a medium saucepan with salt and water.
Cover the saucepan and bring to a boil for approximately 5-6 minutes until they’re tender – The baby carrots need to be fully cooked to a tender texture to ensure that the carrots soak up the flavor from the honey, lemon juice, and parsley.
Can you reheat honey glazed carrots?
You can reheat the honey glazed carrots in an oven preheated at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes or until the leftovers are thoroughly heated through.
Can I freeze glazed carrots?
I don’t recommend you freeze glazed carrots. Baby carrots tend to become mushy when you’ve stored them in the freezer and then thaw for later consumption. It’s best to store your leftover in the refrigerator and reheat within a few days for the best flavor and texture.
