Sometimes it’s the simplest of things (or homemade honeyed carrots)

I think one of the reasons that I like cooking for myself rather than eating out is because, with only a few basic ingredients and a little bit of time and planning you can make such yummy things.

These are some of the baby carrots from our garden, they needed to be ’thinned’ out so that the others could grow but we left it a little late and so by the time they got pulled out they were really beautiful baby carrots in their own right! An heirloom mix you can see some variation in colour; pinky purple blotches and a creamy yellowy colour alongside the more usual orange. We decided to jazz them up by frying them with some oil, honey, lemon juice, thyme and a tiny sprinkle of salt. Delicious!

Sometimes, it’s the simple things.
