Recipe Yield: Total time: 35 minutes | Serves 4
8 carrots 1 1/2 tablespoons honey 1/4 cup butter 6 thyme sprigs Salt and freshly ground black pepper Grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Step 1 Peel the carrots and cut them into chunky slices on the diagonal. Place in a large saute pan and pour over enough cold water to just cover. Add the honey, butter, thyme and a generous pinch of salt. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Cook until the carrots are almost tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 2 Now, turn up the heat to boil the liquid rapidly until reduced to a shiny, sweet glaze -- there should be 1 to 2 tablespoons of intensely flavored cooking liquor coating the carrots, nothing more. Squeeze over the lemon juice and check the seasoning. You'll need a turn of the pepper mill and a pinch or two of salt, but no more.

Step 3Just before serving, sprinkle over the lemon zest.
