I didn't have any bourbon in the house, but I had a mini bottle of brandy from a gift basket and I used that. They turned out nice and tender, and the honey really compliments their natural sweetness. They would be wonderful alongside a roasted chicken, honey baked ham, or even a nice pot roast!

What a beautiful picture of carrots this is...weird question though, do I need to add the bourbon? Nothing grosses me out more than alcohol-flavored food and I know people say that the alcohol is supposed to cook out, but in my experience or maybe it's just me...I can always taste the alcohol. This would probably be delicious if it were baked as well as cooked on the stove and then garnished with some chopped walnuts on top.

No worries! You can leave the bourbon out. Feel free to add your favorite nuts and bake bake if desired. Enjoy!
