"I've actually used this recipe way back, but I've turned to it again! I did add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt to taste & to spice up this side dish,

I added 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon! I substituted orange peel for the lemon peel and that gave it a delicious citrus flavor!
I'd omitted the brown sugar & vanilla extract for my own recipe adaptation!
It IS true that the brown sugar glaze
does give flavor! Now that I think of it,
I used orange juice instead of brown sugar to glaze these carrots. Thank you, Pat Habiger, for sharing this recipe!
