This is truly a 5* recipe! I used 1/4 tsp. lemon pepper and 1-1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes. I'd sliced the carrots in rounds.

Loved, was not a huge fan of the Dijon mustard. I added 1 cup of apple juice to the water for boiling. 10 minutes boiling in the juice/water mixture and the 20 mins simmer on low. Nice and tender.

What a delicious alternative to plain ol' buttered carrots (and not much more work)!! I followed this recipe exactly and it delivers the taste it promises ..... the perfect balance of sweet and tangy!! I'll surely be making this recipe often and plan to make it for the upcoming holiday meals. 5 stars for sure but I'd give it 10 stars if I could! Volunteer Field Editor

This was a refreshing change of pace! Only made half of the recipe, since there's only 3 of us, and I didn't have any brown sugar, so I just skipped that . Came out really good!

This was simple and a delicious. A nice change from the honey/brown sugar glazed carrots. I steamed baby carrots separately, then just started with step 2. I added in a dash of salt since I didn't boil the carrots with the salt. I'd make this again.

I was looking for a change to my standard steamed carrots and gave this recipe a try. Wow! These were absolutely fantastic, and I will definitely make again. What a simple and tasty way to dress up carrots. Wish I could give this 10 stars!
