Thyme And Honey Roasted Carrots

Carrots are a delightful complement to roasts of any kind beef, pork, lamb, or poultry and this recipe is a delicious way to serve carrots

I like to use baby carrots or small Chantenay for this dish there is no need to cut them into batons roasted carrots have a wonderfully sweet, intense flavour and silky velvety texture and this recipe is one that we used to put on the menu a lot in Palm Springs, so if you have the oven on for a roast why not stick the carrots in as well
