Carrots - Our Favourite Glazed Carrots

"Sweet glazed carrots are a great addition to the holiday table or any time you want to add a special side dish to make for that added touch. This recipe is from my daughters collection and the one her young son choose for the cookbook created and published as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of our local school. We love these delicious and easy to make glazed carrots, a family favourite and a given at holiday time and family gatherings."
