During the holidays, everything you make deserves a little dressing up -- including humble but hearty root vegetables.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, such as safflower

  • 2 pounds carrots, cut into 1-inch lengths, halved if thick

  • 1 cup canned reduced-sodium chicken broth or water

  • ½ cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add carrots; cook, stirring once, until beginning to brown, 2 minutes.

  2. Add broth, honey, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until crisp-tender, 10 minutes. Uncover, and cook over medium-high until carrots are tender and liquid is syrupy, 7 to 9 minutes more (there should be only a small amount of liquid remaining).

  3. Remove skillet from heat; add butter, and swirl skillet until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
