When you are looking for something to give your roast meal a bit of a lift then we have the recipe here. The side dish Spiced Honey Coated Carrots have everything you need. I served these with roast potatoes, leg of lamb and peas for a superb roast meal. They are lightly spiced giving a bit of warmth whilst the honey provides the sweetness. The Cinnamon and Nutmeg gives just enough to improve the carrots flavour without being overpowering. Whilst the chives give a fresh onion click that just works. Also the carrots are just as good served cold with cold meats and chutney.
