I made this recipe with ordinary carrots cut into sticks. I cooked it in a wide saucepan and ended up not adding any water at all as there seemed to be plenty coming out of the carrots. It took about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, and they were delicious. I’ll definitely be making this recipe again!

Really easy and tasty. I used dried thyme as I used all my fresh thyme up in the roast chicken, would recommend.

Initially made this for Christmas dinner but they went down so well I make them regularly. The carrots are juicy and full of flavor with the herbs and honey - the whole family love them. Really easy dish as you can leave them to simmer while doing other things.
