Honey citrus glazed carrots are zesty, flavor-packed, and simple to make. It is one of my favorite dishes to cook, especially when I feel a little fancy, and I serve them over a bed of gut-healthy Greek yogurt. The combination truly makes for a mouthwatering first bite.

Without a doubt, the star of this side dish is my homemade hot honey. It is the ideal combination of sweet and savory flavors, featuring fresh chilis, apple cider vinegar, crushed red pepper flakes, and of course, honey.

These honey citrus glazed carrots will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days. You may freeze cooked carrots for approximately six to nine months before they lose their flavor and texture. Be sure to store the vegetables in a tightly sealed, freezer-safe container for optimal results.
To reheat leftover carrots, I suggest using the oven to preserve the vegetable’s crunchy texture. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover your glazed carrots to avoid excess browning and allow them to cook until completely warm, which typically takes approximately twenty minutes. You may also use the microwave, though it may soften the carrots slightly.
