    Delicious! I cut the recipe into thirds and substituted olive oil for the canola oil. Thank you, Deirdre, for sharing this recipe.

    Easy, fast and delicious! I have some that do not care for the honey, so I make one batch as written, and the second, using batch swapping out the honey for balsamic vinegar. Everyone is happy.

    These carrots are very tasty. The thyme made the carrots more "dressed-up". I wrapped mine tightly in foil and placed the packet in the crock pot with the chicken I was cooking in there.

    These were excellent! I used baby carrots for convenience. The flavor was great - I think I could have even used less salt - and they were easy to involve my child in the cooking process.

    Very Good!!! These carrots had such a wonderful caramelized flavor. My daughter had thirds and would of have had more if there were any left. Definitely a must try!! Field Editor
