1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 T chile pepper, diced, or chile flakes

1. In a steamer set over boiling water steam the carrots till tender, about 4 to 8 minutes,
or until they are just tender, and transfer them to a bowl.

2. In a skillet, melt the butter with the honey and the lemon juice, stirring until the
mixture is smooth, and add the carrots and peppers.

3. Cook the mixture over moderately low heat, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the carrots are glazed evenly and heated through, and season it with salt and pepper.
