Instant Pot Carrots Honey
You could also add a splash of honey there. A little goes a long way, so add just 2 tablespoons or so and then if you want more, add it at the end when served. Carrots in the instant pot have a much faster cooking time than the stove method.
Glazed carrots can also be made using this same cooking method. Simply sprinkle 1/4 – 1/2 cup brown sugar. Add it before the butter so that everything melts. It’s a super quick and easy way to cook carrots perfectly.
