Servings 4 people
- 1 lb baby carrots
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp honey
- ¼ tsp grated ginger
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup parsley chopped

Rinse carrots and put in a medium saucepan, season with salt, and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain the carrots and set aside.
In the same pan, add the butter and garlic and melt over medium to low heat—stir in the honey and brown sugar and cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved.
