  • About

This is a simple side dish that works particularly well with roast pork – both honey and fennel are great partners for the pig. If you are a fennel fan, rub crushed fennel seeds into the scored pork skin (with the salt) to make fantastic, aniseed crackling.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg carrots, peeled
  • 2–3 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil

Method

Heat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.

Cut the carrots into long wedges or roll-cut them into angular pieces. If they are small and slender, leave them whole or cut them in half lengthways. Toss with the oil, fennel seeds, honey and salt.
