Impressive and Tasty. I would suggest using larger sizedcarrots. I roasted mine . I used a knife to hollow out the centers but if the carrots are soft enough a Mellon baller would work well.Cook time in this recipe is slightly off . And a properly cooked carrot is key.I left out the horseradish. We really enjoyed these healthy, eye catching unusual Carrots.Volunteer TOH Field Editor
