These were delicious! The Dijon/brown sugar combo was wonderful, not at all spicy. I think using fresh carrots and all fresh herbs makes a big difference as each imparts a special flavor. When added all together it is a 5 star recipe.

Tossed with pasta and served with ham for a side dish.

Very tasty and easy. Got a lot of compliments on it at Thanksgiving. I did decrease the Dijon to 1 tablespoon, as I am not a fan of spicy food or overly heavy flavors like mustard, but for those who thought it lacked "something", maybe next time try increasing the Dijon. Everyone's tastes are different, so tweak it your way.

This was very good, but needed a little more "something" - still playing with as we enjoyed it but just felt something was missing. Will make again and find out what it needs for my family's taste preference.

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.
