Honey & Lime Glazed Carrots

I’m not exactly sure why lime came to mind when I was making carrots but It may have been there wasn’t much left in the fridge and I needed to get creative… Boy they were really great!

1 bag of baby carrots (you can use regular carrots chopped into 1 to 2 inch pieces or the small fresh carrots with the greens too, I just had these in the veggie drawer)
2 Tablespoons honey
1 lime
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons water
1 tsp chopped chives
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 Teaspoon Aleppo Pepper or Red Pepper Flakes: optional(the Aleppo adds a nice gradual heat)

*In a saute pan add butter, olive oil, water, Aleppo Pepper and carrots.
*Heat to Med/high and cover. (The water helps to soften the carrots and keeps them from getting too brown)
*Cook for about 5 minutes
*Test the carrots to see if they are starting to get tender. They should be firm & tender, not soft and mushy. This is pretty quick.
*Remove from heat and add in the honey and squeeze in the lime.
*Stir & serve immediately (the honey and lime don’t cook in with the carrots they are added at the end to coat)
*Garnish with chives for some green color & sprinkle with garlic salt.
