Honey and Tarragon-Roasted Carrots

Garden-grown tarragon at the height of summer is such a treat. Tarragon is widely abundant here in the summer months, and it is a must on my table regularly year-round!

This recipe is a great way to make carrots a guilty pleasure!

Carrots are a terrific source of potassium, vitamin B6 and C; iron, and magnesium.

The best thing about them is how they brighten up any table.

These roasted carrots are packable, making them the perfect treat to take to picnics and other potlucks all summer long.
