  • 1 lb fresh baby carrots or carrots cut to a similar 2 inches x 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter not margarine


  • Add 1/2 cup water to the pressure cooker. 
  • Wash the carrots and place them in a steamer tray. Place the tray in the cooker, using a cooking rack if needed to elevate it above the water level. Lock the lid in place. 
  • Turn Instant Pot on to high pressure for 3 minutes. 
  • Use the quick release method before opening the lid. Remove carrots and place aside for now.
  • Turn Instant Pot onto Saute Mode (medium heat) & melt the butter in . Add the dill and fry a couple of minutes or until the aroma if released. Add salt and honey, stirring to blend. 
  • Add the cooked carrots and saute, turning gently until they are well coated with the honey mixture and heated through. Serve hot, spooning any remaining honey butter over the carrots


I use a medium high heat to get a nice glaze on the carrots as they get well coated by the honey mixture. Stir frequently, gently moving the carrots around to get them completely covered with the glaze. Keep stirring as the glaze thickens and the little bits of herbs start sticking to the carrots. When it begins to look like there is less glaze in the pan and you can see the bare metal, then the glaze is set. When you dish the carrots, pour any remaining honey mixture over the top. Sweet and tender enough to appeal to children, the scent of herbs and flavors will tempt adults as well.
