Reviews for Contest-Winning Glazed Carrot Coins
"These carrots are easy to prepare and taste wonderful! It makes a great diabetic exchange!! We love them!!"
"Very easy and good. My son and I really liked them but they weren't enough to convert my husband who doesn't really care for cooked carrots. I did not have ginger so just used extra cinnamon."
"I tried this recipe and it was delicious. Then I tried it with parsnips--also delicious!"
"I used this recipe, too! I admit that I DID omit the brown sugar, though, for health issues! I'd also omitted the ginger, but I used the ground cinnamon and 6 to 12 carrots! It's just my Mom & myself, soI used it just for us! I admit that brown sugar DOES give carrots a nice flavor!It IS a dish I keep in the back my my mind when I want to prepare a carrot side dish!Thank you for sharing this recipe, Helen Bethel! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
