Secret Ingredient Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots 2 pounds baby/thin carrots peeled, tops chopped off or to 2 inches* 1/4 cup apricot preserves 2 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon butter, melted 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder 1/4 teaspoon Ground Mustard 1/4 teaspoon Thyme Leaves 1/8 teaspoon Ground Cumin 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepperT Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients and pour over carrots. Toss until evenly coated. Line carrots in a single layer. Bake for 30-45 minutes depending on carrot thickness, until fork tender, stirring after 20 minutes.*** Roast longer for more caramelization. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired. NOTES *Baby carrots simply refer to young, thinner carrots that are not tough or woody. They can often be found in the organic section of your grocery store. If you want to use different carrots then cut extra thick carrots in half lengthwise and adjust cooking time - carrots are done when they are fork tender or roast longer for more caramelization.
