Griggstown Honey Roasted Carrots

Delicious with roast chicken, these carrots are simple to prepare at home and a perennial favorite among adults and children alike. We have several hives on our 70 acre farm in Griggstown, New Jersey and our beekeeper friend harvests and packages the local honey for us.

12 medium carrots, peeled

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons Griggstown Wildflower honey

1 ¼ teaspoons coarse salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root (optional)

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs (dill, parsley and/or thyme)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

If the carrots are thicker than 2″ around, cut in half lengthwise. Cut the carrots diagonally into 2″ long pieces on a diagonal. After each cut, rotate the carrot 45 degrees to create asymmetrical chunky pieces. The carrots shrink while cooking so you want the pieces to be large. Toss the carrot pieces in a large bowl with the olive oil and honey to coat. Add the salt, pepper and ginger if using and toss again to coat evenly. Arrange the seasoned carrots in a sheet pan large enough to accommodate all in a single layer. Roast the carrots in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice, or until tender and beginning to char around the edges. Toss with the fresh minced herbs, season to taste with additional salt and pepper as needed and serve hot.
