wooden spoon: balsamic and honey carrots

i felt for my october wooden spoon that i would make something halloween-like and while carrots aren't really spooky, it's orange. (which is close enough in my book) here's what you'll need:
3-4 large carrots, cleaned and peeled
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup of honey

first, combine both your balsamic vinegar and honey in a measuring cup and whisk until smooth and well mixed. it should be syrupy like below...

next, after you have cleaned and pealed your carrots, have pups eagerly waiting for you to drop food, and a trash can handy just in case - slice in half and quarter length-wise your carrots. (if you like smaller pieces, feel free to slice in half again!)

now, heat a half inch of water in a medium-sized pot on med-high heat until boiling. place the carrots in, turn off heat and cover for three minutes or until carrots are tender but not soggy.
then drain the water and place carrots back into the warm pot. immediately drizzle your balsamic-honey mixture over and toss to mix.

serve up and enjoy! mmm!
