You'll be sure to impress your guests with the attractive presentation and flavor of this recipe.

There’s more than one way to serve a carrot! But, we found one of the most delicious ways to cook up this vitamin-rich root vegetable. “French” carrots are simply carrots with the leafy tops trimmed and still attached. Our Honey Ginger French Carrots are first par-cooked in boiling water, then finished in a pan. The ginger, honey, balsamic vinegar, and fresh parsley make a delicious glaze. Aromatic flavors come together in this dish that’s both tasty and beautiful.

Make our Honey Ginger French Carrots a part of your next dinner party, and you’ll be sure to impress with their attractive presentation and flavor. If you don’t want to take the time to “French” your carrots, the recipe works just as well with baby carrots.
