Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These were certainly interesting! Very sweet, and you certainly can't eat too much, but very good. I was out of honey so I used agave nectar, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I was told I could make them again, but not very often because of how sweet they are, but I have plans to make the glaze and use it on other things, like maybe cupcakes.

Oh my gosh! These carrots were a real great addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved them and I got many compliments. I am having them again this Christmas when we dine with my husband's family!
