Reviews for Brandy-Glazed Carrots
"Followed the recipe to the letter and didn't like it at all. It smelled and tasted weird. The problem was probably in the reduction. It took forever to reduce and by the time I had a little over 1/2 cup, it was almost caramel. I think 1/2 cup honey was too much. I had my husband taste them before I dumped them, and he had the same reaction."
"This was odd tasting."
"These carrots are wonderful! I diced some of my home-grown carrots instead of using baby carrots, and cut the recipe by two-thirds since it's just my husband and me. The recipe was so easy to prepare and absolutely delicious!"
"Easy & very good!"
"I was very surprised with how easy this dish was to make but pleasantly surprised with how great it tasted. If you enjoy a recipe that allows you to indulge in the fresh taste of baby carrots then this will be a hit at the dinner table."
