When I was a girl, Mother made carrots taste more like candy than a vegetable with this recipe. She'd serve them, garnished with parsley, in a pretty bowl. They looked too good to eat - but that didn't stop us! -Helen Vail, Glenside, Pennsylvania

"Lovely sweet flavor. The cumin was a surprise ingredient but added another layer of flavor. We will have this dish again."

"I did not think that cumin made the carrots taste candied. Did not care for this dish."
