Zippy Carrots Recipe

Publisher Photo
THIS RECIPE originally didn't call for green pepper, but when I was making it one time, I noticed some in the refrigerator and decided to add it. It gave a little extra zip, so I've kept it a part of the recipe. This makes ordinary carrots special and adds nice color to a meal. -Mina Dyck, Boissevain, Manitoba
