  • 3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices on the diagonal (you don't want them too thick or they will take forever to cook)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (2 cloves if exceptionally large)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley


  • In a 10 inch skillet (preferably cast-iron), heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add carrots and salt once melted, stirring to coat.
  • Place cover on skillet and cook for 15 minutes over medium heat. Then remove and stir in the garlic. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10-15 minutes, until fork tender.
  • Stir in remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, honey, and parsley, cooking 2 minutes to combine. Taste, adjusting salt as needed. Serve warm.
