- English Carrots – 1kg
- Longley Farm Luxury Jersey Butter – 110g
- Fresh Garlic – 4 Cloves Diced
- Gates Clear Blossom Honey – 3 Tablespoons
- 1 x Fresh Lemon
- Sea Salt & Pepper
- Fresh Thyme – 1 ½ Tablespoons
Preheat your oven to 200°c
Peel your carrots and cut them once down the length. This should leave you 2 pieces per carrot with a flat side and a rounded side. You can leave them whole but they will take longer to cook.
Put a pan on the hob on a medium heat and add in your butter, honey and garlic.
To this mixture, add your carrots and make sure they’re all coated and incorporated in the honey and garlic mixture.
After they’ve softened slightly, about 10 minutes depending on the thickness of your carrots, squeeze a whole lemon’s worth of juice in then add thyme, sea salt & pepper to taste.
Get a glass oven safe dish, add in your carrots making sure to scoop in all the glaze.
Put them in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until they’re to your desired texture. Make sure to turn them over after 10 – 15 minutes. (You don’t want them to be completely mushy, still with a little bite would be ideal)
When serving, simply sprinkle an extra pinch of sea salt flakes over the top.
