This is best with really young fresh small carrots. Small young carrots do not need peeling; just a good scrub. For a nice presentation trim the top so that a small bit of the green remains.

This is a delicious side dish that's fancy enough to be served at a holiday meal but easy enough to make on a Wednesday. The roasted carrots are sweet and buttery. There is a little bit of salt and a slightly spicy undertone from the cayenne. The cayenne can easily be adjusted, though, to suit your taste buds.

Note: If you like a lot of glaze on your carrots, brush a little extra honey and butter on them before serving. Also, make sure to flip the carrots every 7 minutes to prevent burning. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
