Tasty carrots! Loved the gingery garlicky tones with its honey sweetness. I followed as directed, except I didn't saute the carrots and didn't cover the pan because I don't like my carrots too soft. It came out perfectly crisp-tender. These will be made again. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for Billboard and FYC tag games.

We really did enjoy these carrots. I made exactly as written and served with our Sunday roast, these carrots were just so delicious, sweet and tender with just the right heat from the ginger. The rice vinegar cuts out a little of the sweetness and gives these carrots the perfect flavor. This recipe will definatly be made again.

I really loved the flavor the honey and ginger gave the carrots. I cut mine into chunks and believe they should have cooked a bit longer. My son loved them....he prefers his carrots raw anyway! Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.
