Annacia these carrots are the bomb. So much flavor, tender and perfectly seasoned. I really enjoyed the nutmeg and honey in this dish. I used vegetable stock and omitted the almonds because of my dh's allergy. These little gems were sooo good, not overly sweet. Thanks for sharing a great way to make my favorite vegetable.

This is going directly into my Best of 2011 Cookbook. My whole family gobbled these carrots right up. The flavor is wonderful and I enjoyed the added crunch from the almonds (I used slivered almonds, since that is what I had on hand). I will make these carrots often! Thank you. :)

These carrots are great! I had everything I needed and they were really quick and easy to put together.....the only thing, I forgot to add the almonds (left the butter out on purpose to cut fat). But they were great cooked the way I did! Thanks for sharing!
