I've reviewed this recipe twice on 2/6/2020 and 2/8/2020. Review has not shown up! I'd used 2 lbs. regular carrots, cut in small strips!

Wow! These were so good and so simple to prepare! The only change was that I didn't have rum extract, so used rum instead. Family loved these and will definitely make again.

Delicious! I would make this recipe again. I used a pear lemon marmalade.

I tried this recipe a few days ago.As much as I love carrots, this recipe proved to be way too sweet.With the leftovers, I rinsed off the marmalade and reheated with good old butter and herbs!

I pealed and toped my carrotts, the sauce didn't get as thick as I assumed it would get but the taste was wonderful. We had this with the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia (TOH) and the sauce and the pecans on the fish was so yummy too!

Very good! Didn't have pecans so I used walnuts.

I didn't have plain pecans, so I used candied pecans instead. It made it even better! My 6 year old asked for seconds!
