Honey Glazed Grilled Carrots

Honey Glazed Grilled Carrots from 101 Cooking For Two
 A tasty grilled veggie to compliment almost any grilled meal. A little char with honey sweetness.

Start with larger whole carrots. Scrub well, peal if you want, brush with oil then grill over medium heat and finally brush with a honey coating and finish grilling. Very yummy.

A medium 4 for me and a little higher for wifo.

Notes: A carrot, like a potato, is done at 210 degrees. Cooking too fast will get you a burnt not done carrot. The carrot needs to be split to cook completely. I use medium heat (about 400 degrees surface temp) here. If you are cooking something else at a higher temperature, lower the heat under the carrots and turn the thicker part towards the higher heat. I did try just honey and it had very little sweet taste, the brown sugar really helped.

 Preheat grill to medium (surface temp of about 400 degrees). Pick straight not too crocked carrots.
Prep the carrots. Scrub well or peal. Cut off the root and skinny tip. Cut in half lengthwise. Mix 1 T honey, 2 t brown sugar and 1 t olive oil. Heat in microwave for 15 seconds to get hot and stir to combine.
 Give the carrots a good brush of olive oil and don't forget the cut ends.
 Grill for 5 minutes, flip grill 5 minutes.
Brush with the honey solution, flip and brush again.

Grill until internal temp of 210 in the thickest part, about 7-10 minutes more until internal temp of 210 degrees.
