Carrots are far from common when teamed with golden raisins, honey, lemon, ginger and almonds. Tabasco pepper sauce effectively balances the sweet taste.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium saucepan cook the carrots in ½ inch of boiling water, covered, over medium heat for 8 minutes. Drain the carrots, then turn into a 1-quart baking dish. Stir in the raisins, butter, honey, lemon juice, ginger and Tabasco sauce. Bake, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes; stir occasionally until the carrots are glazed. Spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with almonds, if desired.
NOTE: To microwave the carrots, combine the butter, honey, lemon juice, ginger and Tabasco sauce in a 1-½-quart microwave-safe casserole. Microwave on high 45 seconds until the butter is melted. Stir to blend. Stir in the carrots. Cover and microwave on high 8 to 10 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with almonds, if desired.
