Ingredients

  • 1 pound Carrots peeled or sliced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley chopped (for garnish, optional)
  • Fresh edible flowers for a special Ostara garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Prepare the Carrots: If using whole carrots, peel and slice them into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. If using baby carrots, rinse them thoroughly.
  • Steam the Carrots: In a steamer basket over boiling water, steam the carrots until they are tender but still firm, about 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, you can boil them in water until tender, but steaming helps to retain more nutrients.
  • Make the Glaze: In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the honey, fresh lemon juice, and ground ginger. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Glaze the Carrots: Once the carrots are tender, transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the honey glaze over the carrots and toss gently until they are evenly coated.
  • Season and Garnish: Season the glazed carrots with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley, or whole edible flowers, over the top for a pop of color and freshness.
  • Serve: Transfer the glazed carrots to a serving dish and serve warm as a delightful side dish for your Ostara feast.
