“I first tasted this three-ingredient side dish at my aunt’s house,” relates Karen Wren from Freedom, Maine. “I thought they were the sweetest, most tender carrots I’d ever had. I make them all the time now.”

    This is a quick and easy side dish and my family really likes it. A real keeper! I don't know why the stars aren't showing but I rated this a 5.

    Easy, simple and good. I used 2 pounds of carrots and it took 20+ minutes to get them tender.
