Boil carrots in water until tender. Drain the excess water. Add the butter soon after draining the water as it will melt faster. Add the salt. Drizzle honey over the carrots. Mix to coat.
We enjoy finding new ways to eat our vegetables, even if it does taste more like a dessert!

We LOVE eating warm banana bread with melted butter on top. Ummm. We always like to double the batch and make some for the neighbors.
*Growing up I remember seeing brown bananas on the kitchen counter and being so tempted to throw them away, but I know if I mentioned it to my mom, she would quickly reply.."Don't throw the bananas away, I'm planning on making banana bread". I was so happy when she actually did make the banana bread!
