My mother served this attractive side dish for all her special dinners, so I've been eating carrots this way since I was a child. Even my dinner guests who aren't too fond of carrots ask for this recipe. The added sweetness from the honey is a pleasant surprise. -Joanie Elbourn, Gardner, Massachusetts
