I used regular carrots cut on a bias instead of the baby cut ones. It worked great & I loved this recipe. I wanted to add a little flavor to what can otherwise be a boring vegetable, but w/o making it unhealthy. It is after all a vegetable. Great recipe!

These carrots are so easy to put together and they are great for adding color to a meal. Sometimes I sub a little bit of orange juice for the lemon juice. A little orange or lemon zest also adds just a bit of zing to complement the sweet honey.

These do not last long when I make them! Great way to get your carrots in! My 1 yr old, 2 yr old, husband & myself eat 'em up. I let them cook just a tad little longer so they will be tender enough for the young kids.
