This is a recipe I've been making for so long. Im pretty sure it happened because I had some leftover honey butter from making a pan of corn bread and then decided to toss some of the honey butter combo in with the carrots. I had had a butter and syrup combo before so I knew carrots would taste delicious with this sweet buttery combo. It has been a favorite in our house, a staple. More often than not my kids have to have their carrots this way than any other way. Tital Peeler I LOVE this . . .
