Honey Saffron Glazed Carrots is my recipe of the day. I enjoy making glazed carrots as a side dish. Besides being wonderfully delicious,  they are also healthy.

I this recipe, I decided to go with two flavors that go very well together for me: honey and saffron.  They offer something exotic  in taste that reminds  me  of  Morocco or the Middle East.  And I adore foods from those places.

Honey Saffron Glazed Carrots

While  many  times I might  choose to pan  roast  my  carrots in the  oven, this time I did them  on the stove. Cooks can  have a variety of reasons for where they like to  cook things. Whether it is because something already  occupies  oven real  estate or not wanting  to  heat  up the  kitchen.

With winter almost here,  running the  oven doesn’t bother me at all.  But  I do  like the opportunity to do carrots in a pan  where I can watch them.

That way I can make sure the  glaze  is actually something  that  clings. And not just runny liquid that lands in the bottom  of the pan,  or worse yet,   burns.

These came together nicely on the stove.  I hope you can  see how well  the sauce did cling and glaze. We did  want that scrumptious  part to be in our  mouth when we take a bite.

I think  you will enjoy these.  They would pair wonderfully with roasted chicken or a baked ham. As a side dish to curry is not out of the question  either.
