Bourbon Glazed Honey Carrots

Bourbon Glazed Honey Carrots

Give your carrot dish a twist this Easter with our Bourbon Glazed Honey Carrots.

This Tastes of Aloha original recipe includes fresh carrots smothered in a delicate glaze made with Barrel-Aged Bourbon Honey from Kailua Honey.

Get the full recipe below, and read until the bottom for a fun fact about this honey (and how you can help support not one but three local Hawaiian businesses!) 

Ingredients

Method

  1. Place the carrots in a large pan and add 1 1/4 cups of water.
  2. Bring the carrots to a simmer. Cook the carrots for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain off any excess water.
  3. Add the butter, honey and salt to the pan. Stir to coat the carrots thoroughly.
  4. Cook for an additional 4-5 minutes, stirring on occasion, until a glaze has formed.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley if desired, then serve immediately.

Now for the fun fact. . . 

When you use this, you'll be supporting not one but three local Hawaiian businesses (us included!), and here's why!

This honey is produced by Kailua Honey in collaboration with Ko`olau Distillery in Kailua. They age their raw Hawaiian honey in bourbon barrels. After the honey is aged to sweet perfection, they remove it and return the barrels to Ko`olau Distillery who then produces limited-edition Honey Bourbon in the same barrels.
