Crock-Pot Balsamic & Honey Carrots

Pin It PIN IT!

Are y’all ready for the easiest side dish you could ever make for Thanksgiving? Yes, I said Thanksgiving. Even if the thought of T-day has you poppin’ a few xany’s, let me just reiterate that this recipe for crock-pot balsamic & honey carrots is the easiest thing you will ever make in your life.

How easy? Well, let’s see here. You cut the carrots up. Put them into the basin of your beloved crock-pot. Then you pour some balsamic and honey onto them. Do a few sprinkles of salt and pepper, cover it and then 4 hours later you are welcomed with this plate of pure, unadulterated awesome.

I love helping prepare the Thanksgiving meal. I love making the stuffing, mashing the potatoes and sneaking spoonfuls of whipped cream before we put it on the pie. But you know what else I love doing on Thanksgiving? Catching up with my family! Laughing, telling jokes, drinking wine, all things you can’t do when you’re slaving away in the kitchen all day. So, friends, use the crock-pot for some of your sides. Just let it happen. Because it give you more time to spend with those you are thankful for (see what I did there?) and the dishes turn out just as perfect as if you spent hours whisking and baking them. Case in point? These gorgeous carrots cooked to absolute perfection with a sweet, tangy marinade.

This Southern inspired, sweet vegetable dish is what Thanksgiving is all about, in my humble opinion. Easy, delicious food made from the heart that just makes you feel good with each bite. I’m tripling this recipe and serving it at my table this year because SOMEONE may have eaten one whole batch themselves. With their fingers directly from le crock-pot. You see officer, I was just minding my own business and then when I looked, they were gone. I can explain the honey, balsamic mess on my fingers and face…I was…erm…exfoliating.

    These sound really tasty and I love the idea of that balsamic tang to cut through the richness of the rest of the meal.
