"Love it. Great holiday/fall recipe. Save yourself some time and just buy baby petite carrots. Comes out just fine."

"This makes for a good alternative holiday side. I didn't give it five stars because I felt like the recipe came out a bit bitter. It might have been the marmalade. I always feel like its a tad bitter. So, since I'm from the south, I ended up doubling the brown sugar and butter :) I also thickened it up a bit more with more cornstarch because I like a thick sauce that sticks to the carrot and doesn't run over everything in your plate."

"It was good but not my favorite. I had to leave out the cinnamon due to an allergy and I am sure that is what made the difference. My husband liked his though. (He sprinkled cinnamon on them)"

"I do not like carrots but I made this recipe for a family dinner because everyone else likes them. They said the flavor was good but the carrots were still too raw after 6 hours on low and 1/2 hour on high. My mother took the leftovers home and plans to continue cooking them on the stovetop."

"This is an awesome recipe and so easy to get ready. I think it would make a great alternative to sweet potatoes at the holidays. We added a few chopped pecans when we served these and they were an added delight. Will make this again for sure!!"
