I can't believe how good these are! I generally hate carrots, even though I love most vegetables and eat them every day. I've been looking for a way to cook carrots that would allow me to add them to my diet. This is it! Thanks so much for posting this wonderful recipe!

Great flavor. I am going to make them for Thanksgiving substituting yams for the carrots. Can't wait to try!
