The perfect Christmas gift for you or a loved one
Mash the butter in a bowl with the honey and fennel seeds. Cover and chill until needed. Can be prepared up to three days ahead.
Trim the tops off the carrots and wash under cold running water, scrubbing them with a clean scourer to get rid of any dirt. Put the carrots in a large, microwave-proof bowl with 2 tsp water. Cover the carrots with a microwaveable plate or lid and heat on full power for 5-6 mins until just tender. Drain, then toss with the honey and fennel butter and parsley. Taste for seasoning and serve.
