Pomegranate-Balsamic Glazed Carrots



These carrots make a tasty and quick side dish that is both delicious and impressive. I was lucky enough to receive some fantastic pomegranate balsamic vinegar as a gift, so I decided to put it to use. The tangy balsamic mixes with the sweetness of the honey and a touch of spicy cayenne to create a complex and unique dish. It's easy to whip up a pomegranate balsamic mixture of your own.  I urge you to give this one a try.
