Honey Glazed Baby Carrots

 One of the few veggies that Mr. W likes to eat are carrots.   So, using some of the fresh honey that my friend gave me, I decided to switch it up a little.  These carrots are sweet, tender and delicious.  I will definitely be making these again, they were a huge hit!!!

Recipe adapted from Sunny Anderson

1 pound baby carrots
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice

In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add salt and then carrots and cook until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain the carrots.  Add butter, honey and lemon juice to your pan.  Then put carrots back in your pan.

Cook until a glaze coats the carrots, 5 minutes. Season with salt as needed. Serve immediately.

  1. I have been known to put a little sugar in the water when cooking carrots but may have to give this a try! Thanks and have a great weekend.

  2. I think carrots are highly underrated!

  3. i make and love honey galzed carrots.They don't only look nice but taste fantastic;)

  4. Donna, this sounds delicious. We eat raw carrots by the 5 pound bag every week, but I honestly can't remember cooking a single carrot in my life. I'm sitting here trying to remember. Oh, would it count if I cooked them with a roast once? I'll have to try this. I bet the kids would love it.

  5. Honey is great on carrots, and it definitely helps when you're trying to get someone to eat the vegetable I'm sure!
