These are definitely delicious carrots and SO simple to make. I used a bag of baby carrots and just threw all of the ingredients into a pot with 1 cup of water. Then I brought it to a boil, covered the pan and reduced the heat to a simmer. I simmered the carrots covered for 15 minutes and then uncovered for 10 minutes until the sauce was reduced. My 80 year old Dad looked at the plate and said: "CARROTS? YUK!" I told him to just try 'em, and he did.... He then requested seconds!
I also like to make carrots this way but I like to use fresh ginger root, about 1/2 to 1 tsp chopped fine. I OFTEN make them in the microwave, which means you throw the above ingredients into a glass casserole along with about 1 T. water, cover it with plastic wrap, and micro cook for 6 to 8 minutes right when you are ready to serve.
Loved this very simple and elegant dish for Christmas dinner last night! The ginger really made the dish. I microwaved the sauce, but next time I'll do it on the stove. Everyone loved these! Thanks for a great recipe!
These are fabulous! My fiance bought a huge bag of baby carrots and I needed to find a way to fix them. Neither of us particularly like cooked carrots, but these are the exception! I steamed the carrots and microwaved the butter, brown sugar and ground ginger for 30 seconds. Then, I drained the water from the pan, added the carrots and sauce and voila! A ridiculously easy, DELICIOUS one-pot side! The ginger flavor isn't obvious, but gives these something extra.
I loved the recipe the way it came out. Its was awesome and my whole family loved it. Easy and tasty, thank you :) It tasted amazing with chicken and mayonnaise salad.
I made these for DH, as is the only one who likes cooked carrots in our house. He gave them 3 stars. He said they were "okay" and "not bad, but not his favorite." Lots of leftovers.
Delicious as is. Also very good using half parsnips, half carrots.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I have made it twice now, first with brown sugar and the second time with maple syrup sugar! Both were a hit with everyone. Thanks.
Really good. Super fast and easy to fix. Thanks for the recipe!
Yummy way to make carrots! Thanks!!!
