A question about a recipe: Easy Honey-Roasted Carrots

510b100b c67d 4b2f b314 968eed437412  rbaroni ucat honey carrots

I have a question about the recipe "Easy Honey-Roasted Carrots" from Regan Baroni. Wondering whether better or advisable to par boil or steam the carrots a bit before roasting? An Epicurious recipe suggests this and was hoping maybe someone here who tried either or both approaches could advise?

You could if you wanted, it could decrease the baking time even though it's a little more work. But I wouldn't par-cook, just roast until they're tender.

I find a straight roast leads to more sweetness. If I have thick carrots I cut them in half longway. If you are in huge rush, par boil, fan dry (make little paper fan), and that will work. But damp makes them steam. Dry lets them roast.

Sorry Stephanie B. I didn't do the post button properly! I think we agree on carrot roast!

That's ok I think you explained it better and gave details as to why just roasting works well :)

Unsurprisingly, Kenji over at Serious Eats has a general opinion about roasted carrots: parboil first.

I concur. I have not tried the recipe you have referred to.

Best of luck.
