Honey Maple-Butter Glazed Carrots

1 to 2 pounds of peeled carrots (Mom served hers in 4 inch diagonal lengths)
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. Maple Syrup Butter (
½ cup gluten free chicken stock
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
A Pinch of cinnamon & Nutmeg
¼ cup of chopped parsley or chives for garnish (optional)

Place your carrots in an oven safe, serving dish. If you use a dish that is oven proof and beautiful you can take the carrots out directly from the oven to serving and not make any extra dirty dishes.
There are many of this type of casserole available. I try to keep mine in simple colours so that I can use them with any meal, no matter the colour scheme or occasion. I find white dishes the easiest to match with almost any tablescape.

In a separate bowl mix together the remaining ingredients. Mix well and then pour the glaze over your carrots, toss together to spread the glaze over all of the carrots. Bake your carrots in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes in a covered casserole, until they are fork soft. You can make this recipe earlier in the day and set it aside, then just pop it in the oven to rewarm it just before serving. Just make sure you do not overcook the carrots otherwise when you rewarm them they will get mushy.
