"THE SWEET TASTE of the glaze not only enhances these carrots, but it is very compatible with the rest of the meal. Another great thing about this vegetable dish is that it adds a nice colorful touch to the table. Whenever Mom fixed this dish I was never disappointed!"

"this is a great & flavorful recipe. the only thing I changed was that I quartered my carrots rather than slicing them. THANKS"

"Personally like them but my kids didn't care for them I think it was the lemon juice they didn't like. I used 1# baby carrots. Next time will cut down on the lemon juice also a little more brown sugar and will slightly thicken it so it sticks to the carrots better. Also added fresh ground Mediterranean sea salt and fresh ground black pepper."
