Honey Glazed Carrots

Teresa Ambra
Honey Glazed Carrots are wonderful! This easy old-fashioned vintage recipe is one of the first recipes I ever made. It's a scrumptious way to enjoy carrots and great for holiday menus. But this 5-ingredient recipe is so quick and easy to make, you can serve it anytime. Gluten free.
