A great side dish to any roast, or with Christmas dinner, these thyme-speckled honey roasted carrots are cooked to enhance their natural sweetness.

Buyer's guide

Choose firm carrots and avoid those that are flabby with wilted green tops. Go for small carrots if you can, as they are more tender than large ones and need very little cooking.


Smaller or organic carrots only require topping and tailing and a quick scrub. Larger, non-organic carrots will benefit from peeling.
