Honey Mint Carrots

This is a very simple, yet elegant addition to a meal.
I've served it with chicken and potatoes mostly, but it will go with many other combinations.

10-12 carrots (peeled and sliced thinly)
2 or 3 T honey
2 or 3 T butter
1/2 to 1 T crushed mint flakes

Boil carrots until cooked but still firm. Take out 1/2 c of the boiling water. Mix this water with the honey and butter. Drain carrots and place in a serving dish with a lid. Pour honey water over the carrots and add mint flakes (crushing them in your palm as you add them). Stir lightly and place the lid on the dish. Serve within 3-5 minutes for best results.

Note: After you make this once or twice, you'll figure out how much of each to put in your dish. Do it with the smaller amounts first and then tweak it to your family's taste.
