Reviews for Quick Glazed Carrots

The cook time was way over for me on my carrots and the glaze started to burn. I would not make them this way again. I will cook my carrots first and do the glaze separately tossing the carrots in the glaze when finished.
So simple and tasty!
I seem to be the only one who had a problem with these carrots, the sauce got very hard, I MEAN LIKE A ROCK, I did make the sauce about an hour ahead of time so I could just put the cooked carrots in right before we ate. When I reheated the sauce it was like glue, I just kept mixing it over the heat and it was a solid soft mass. I added the carrots and it would not adhere to the carrots, just kept falling off in clumps. I finally took the carrots out removed all the clumps of the solid brown mass and we ate the carrots unglazed. Cannot imagine what happened, this should be a snap to make.
easy and good
I used the very tiny baby carrots and I didn't use the fresh parsley. We really enjoyed them and I would definitely make them again.
