  • 1 (32-ounce) bag of baby carrots
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (or more, to taste)


  • Rinse baby carrots in cool water and pat dry.  Melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat.  Add carrots and stir to coat in butter.
  • Add brown sugar and honey, stir and toss to coat well and brown sugar melts.  Cook carrots until tender and glazed, stirring often, about 10 - 15 minutes, depending on size of carrots.
  • Season with a bit of salt and then stir in fresh thyme leaves.  Transfer to serving bowl, spooning glaze over top of carrots.


  • Like I mentioned above, be picky and choose fresh looking baby carrots.  You can also use 2 pounds of regular fresh carrots (nice ones with the greens attached), peeled and cut into 1½-inch pieces.  Whatever looks best and is easier for you!
  • The smaller the carrot, the faster it'll cook.
  • I use salted butter, use what you like and taste and adjust for salt.
