Great recipe, but decrease the butter AND use a strong-tasting honey. Got lots of positive comments and requests for the recipe. Start with: Good-tasting carrots. (usually large carrots ok, too, just more casual.); Alfalfa or buckwheat honey (you'll never go back to clover or wildflower honey); Michigan cherries, craisins and cranberries are all good. Prefer no sugar or other chemicals added. (Carrots are sweet enough; just want the cherry taste.) This recipe is for about a pound of carrots. I cut the large carrots into 2" slices then sliced them into quarters. If the carrot is really big, into six slices. They end up like mouth-size carrot sticks. Two pounds can be prepared in 10 minutes. The less butter the better. (we hardly ever use it) The recipe "as is" feels like I'm eating butter. So at least half it. The stronger-tasting honey is more for flavor than sweetener. We LOVE this!


I haven't been eating my veggies lately. Tried this recipe, very good. Used craisins and didn't have honey so used brown sugar. Yum. Also, I don't like cooked veggies so much so I just melted the butter and sugar, added the craisins. I let that cook into a sauce and just tossed the baby carrots in the sauce. Not sickening sweet at all, nice compliment to the carrots. Definitely will make again!


Normally I don't like carrots, in any form, and my husband only likes them raw. Not cooked. So we very rarely have carrots in the house, because he is the only one who eats them. That is changing with this recipe. I am eating these as I write this--I might have to make a second batch for him when he gets home. Thanks for a great recipe!! I made it like written, came out great. I forgot, I subbed cranberries as I did not have cherries.
