Honeyed Carrot Coins
IT SEEMS carrots are frequently on my menu. They're so easy to work with and are usually on hand. This is one of my favorite recipes. I got it from a neighbor. We like to share recipes at our potluck suppers while we're eating all those delicious home-cooked dishes. -Annie Hicks, Zephyrhills, Florida
