I like this recipe because the glaze is subtle enough not to overwhelm the flavor of the carrots. Sometimes if I'm short on time I'll use a bag of baby carrots that are pre-washed and pre-peeled.

Perfect, as is! Best glazed carrots I've ever had.

I have been using this recipe since it came out in the 2003 Everyday Food magazine. I will not fix glazed carrots any other way, my family loves these just they way they are. ;)

These carrots were delicious! The glaze was not too sweet and did not overwhelm the carrots. I would recommend this dish. They were a hit during dinner!

delicious way to make carrots. neither me nor my boyfriend are really huge fans of carrots, or most cooked vegetables, but i had some laying around and thought this might be a good way to add veggies into our dinner. i overcooked them a little waiting for him to get home because i wanted them to stay warm, and even a little softer than they should have been they were really yummy. im going to make them again soon and i bet they will be even better with a little crispness left in them!
