What's So Great About Carrots?

Carrots are multifunctional!

Carrots are veggies that can be served raw but they can also be chopped and boiled, fried or steamed, and cooked in soups and stews, as well as baby and pet foods.

Carrots are healthy - they get it's color from beta-carotene, which is metabolized into vitamin A inside human body. Carrots are also excellent source of dietary fibres, antioxidants, and minerals.

Honey - Healthy and Sweet!

Natural sweetener!

We all hear daily about preparing healthier meals, about problems with overweight and dangerous chemicals in our food.

Honey is one of the products you can use without any of this thoughts coming to your mind. It can be used as a natural sweetener is most of your recipes! It gets its sweetness from the monosaccharides fructose and glucose and has approximately the same relative sweetness as that of granulated sugar (97% of the sweetness of sucrose, a disaccharide).

Covered in Honey - The Amazing Flavors of Varietal Honey

The time is right for honey to take its place along with other products, such as fruits, coffees, wines, chocolates, and cheeses, that we want to learn more about. Its origins, its place in a healthy lifestyle, and most important, its subtle flavors and nuances are vital knowledge for those of us who bake and cook with honey.

This is a great little book! It's not your average receipes-only ingredient book. The text does include a lot of history on honey. It also explains what the different types of honey are, what makes them different, and even attempts to give you a guide to what foods/drinks go best with each type. And yes, it does include, many many recipes..... some easy, some a bit more difficult.... but all of them are a must-have for a honey lover.

 

If you try it, I would love to hear your feedback! Did it turn out OK for you? Liked it? Can you come up with something to enhance this basic recipe?

      We make honey carrots all the time in our household. The other favorite is carrots with a little brown sugar and butter on them. Either one adds a little sweetness to the carrots that makes them just plain nummy. Great lens!

      Could this lens be cuter? Love it! Was just talking to someone today about using local honey to fight seasonal allergies. This recipe would be a nice way to do it.

      I love carrots and I love honey! I've never tired these two together, but it sounds interesting. I think I would add some peas to it, as my mother always makes caramelized carrots with peas, and I adore this combination. Lovely lens!

      I generally like my carrots raw so this recipe didn't really appeal to me but I decided to give it a try anyway and found to my surprise that it's delicious. Thank you so much for sharing.

      I love the poster of the fancy carrot cuts. I think I will try some of those with my daughter. Should be a great way to encourage eating more carrots.
