Nice side dish to make, think next time I will sprinkle over sesame seeds just to dress them up a bit.

Use maple syrup instead of honey, this glaze also works well on roast parsnips. Husband says he never thought carrots would be his favourite part of Sunday roast ! I par boil the veg early in the day, drain, leave to cool then pour over the glaze. Great for Christmas Day when you have loads of guests as can prep early . Deleicious recipe.
