Honey-Glazed Carrots

My mother used sugar in this recipe, but a local man who keeps bees on our farm shares honey with use so I use that instead.—Judie Anglen, Riverton, Wyoming

    Pretty good. I used orange juice instead of lemon. Very easy.

    I hate to be the naysayer but we really weren't fans of this. The carrots had a very weird texture to them from cooking in the microwave. I prefer using my steamer. I also didn't think the glaze was very good. We could barely taste it, and what we COULD taste, just tasted like lemon (I could barely taste the honey). I'll stick with my normal brown sugar and butter glaze next time.

    I love this easy and fast recipe. I add a little butter too. I just cook the glaze in the same pan, not a separate skillet. Yum!

    This is a great use of baby carrots! Quick and easy. Sometimes when in a rush I just skip the skillet part and continue cooking in the microwave. Tastes yummy and comforting.
