These were great! I didn't have any apple juice, so I subbed one cup of water and 1/4 cup of ice wine. DH loved them, too!

I had some julienned carrots that needed to be used up, just enough for a couple of servings, so i winged the quantities of the apple juice and honey - a brief saute in butter, a splash of juice and then a bit of honey with it - delicious and quick.

Boy life does not much easier or sweeter then these tasty little carrots. I made one very minor change instead of trimming and using real whole baby carrots used a one pound bag of those precut carrots the stores like to baby carrots. Thanks so much for the post.
