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 organic...baby 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!
