Baby carrots cooked in a honey, butter, ginger, and lemon glaze. This goes really well with peppercorn steak and cheesecake.

I threw in a clove of fresh minced garlic in with the butter and sauteed it a bit before adding the honey lemon juice and ginger. I made no other changes. These were out of this world......even my kids liked them!

Really nice flavor combination. I steamed the carrots instead of cooking in water then sauteed them as directed until the sauce was glazed and very browned over the carrots. Converted some non-carrot eaters in our family to liking this vegetable!

These are very good but I would cut back on the honey. The lemon off sets the sweetness of the honey very well. These would be easy to steam or par boil the carrots ahead of time and finish just before serving.

Very good. I sliced three regular size carrots into 1/8th inch rounds and used the recipe set to 1 serving. I also didn't have lemon juice so I used about an 1/8th of a teaspoon of lemon extract. The honey and lemon gave it a pleasant sweet taste and not at all overpowering. Will definately be cooking this again.

Dd LOVED the honey lemon ginger combo. (I did add garlic) First bite..."Is there ginger? (I used fresh grated all I had) Yum. This is so good! I like this so much better than the orange juice version. Make this A LOT more ok?" Winner winner chicken dinner!

I loved these! I eyeballed the ingredients probably added less honey and more ginger and the results were excellent. I plan to make them again when we have guests next Friday.

I used normal sized carrots (colorful assortment) cut into smaller pieces. really liked this recipe though I'm not a huge fan of carrots I think we ate them all.
