This attractive side dish looks lovely served alongside poultry, pork or beef. Every time my guests taste the deliciously spiced carrots, they ask for the recipe. —Laurie Hicks, Troy, Montana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2010

"I would make it again but I did not have red currant jelly on hand so substituted sweet red pepper jelly which is what I did have. What else might be a good substutute? It is nice to dress up a root vegetable on occasion."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2010

"The onions add a nice touch, but I found just using butter, Triple Sec and carrots gives you a similar taste without all the fuss and ingredients. It's a good recipe and will use again when I have extra time when making a meal."
