These glossy carrots, flavored with orange juice, cinnamon and ginger, are pretty enough for a special meal. To save time, you could substitute two 15-ounce cans of carrots for the fresh ones. —Helen Bethel, Maysville, North Carolina

"Very easy and good. My son and I really liked them but they weren't enough to convert my husband who doesn't really care for cooked carrots. I did not have ginger so just used extra cinnamon."

"I used this recipe, too! I admit that I DID omit the brown sugar, though, for health issues! I'd also omitted the ginger, but I used the ground cinnamon and 6 to 12 carrots! It's just my Mom & myself, so

I used it just for us! I admit that brown sugar DOES give carrots a nice flavor!
It IS a dish I keep in the back my my mind when I want to prepare a carrot side dish!
Thank you for sharing this recipe, Helen Bethel! Dawn E. Lowenstein"

"This was quick and easy, as well as much tastier than plain cooked carrots. Ingredients are those already on hand. Hubby enjoyed them very much. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I cooked the carrots first and then made the sauce and poured over them and heated for a minute or two."
