Anise and carrots go so well together.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

What a great way to dress up the ol' carrot! Don't get me wrong ~ I enjoy eating them raw, but when it comes to company, they usually like to see them a little fancier, & this recipe does just that! Really loved the combo of anise & apricot & will definitely be making this recipe again & again! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook tag]
