How To Make honey butter peas & carrots (slow cooker)

  • 1
    Carrots and onion prepped. (I went the fancy route and cut each slice into shapes with a cutter, certainly not required.)
  • 2
    To your slow cooker, add the onion, water, honey, garlic, salt, marjoram, and white pepper, then stir together.
  • 3
    Add the carrots and cubed butter. Stir to combine. Cover and set to Low setting and cook for 3 hours. (I cubed the butter first, by the time I added it, 10 minutes later, it was very soft, no problem however.)
  • 4
    Check the carrots for tenderness at 3 hours and if tender or very near tender, stir in the drained peas.
  • 5
    Cover and cook for 30 minutes more. If the carrots are not tender, allow to cook for another hour, then add the peas.
  • 6
    Serve as a side dish with any meal, enjoy.
