  • Summary

    Dark honeys, like buckwheat, bring a touch of earthy sweetness to these lightly glazed beauties. The gremolata, made with the frilly green carrot tops, make a delicious and pretty finishing touch while adding to your #wasteless repertoire. If bunched carrots with tops aren't available, use parsley for the gremolata instead.

    Ingredients

    • 4 3/4–5 pounds small carrots with tops (about 4–5 bunches), trimmed, peeled, tops reserved
    • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
    • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon dark honey, such as buckwheat
    • Kosher salt
    • 2 small garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
