"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."
