Zesty Carrots Recipe

Publisher Photo
I'm always on the lookout for unusual recipes that are easy to make, and this is certainly one of those! A cooking teacher in the trade school I attended introduced me to Zesty Carrots. If you're a gardener, this would be a good way to use up a bumper crop of carrots! They're so tasty they might even make carrot lovers out of people who aren't "fans" of them now.
