This 6-ingredient slow cooker recipe turns carrots into a gourmet treat

Print this recipe
Carrots boast a natural sweetness, highlighted in the recipe below with the addition of lemon and honey. They also get a subtle note of herbal flavor, thanks to lemon thyme. Unlike its cousin, regular thyme, lemon thyme has almost no touch of bitterness. Instead, it's aromatic and zesty: the perfect seasoning for tender carrots.
This recipe is so easy to make when you take advantage of your slow cooker, which will allow the carrots to soak up all the flavor of the glaze without ever becoming mushy or soggy. At three hours of cooking, the carrots should still retain quite a bit of snap; four hours will leave them slightly more tender.
