Sweet Carrots

Here's any easy side that sat on our Christmas buffet this year.  I thought that we could get kids to eat some veggies by making them sweet...well I don't think it worked, but many of us enjoyed them anyway.

1  1/2 pounds baby carrots
6 Tbl brown sugar
4 Tbl butter
2 Tbl honey
Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium sauce pan place the carrots, cover with water and bring to a boil.  Simmer the carrots for 8 to 10 minutes until tender.  Drain and reserve in a bowl.  In the same pan, melt the butter and stir in the sugar and honey over medium heat.  Add the cooked carrots and continue to cook about 5 minutes more until the carrots are nice and glazed.  Season with the salt and pepper.
