I needed a side dish and had a bag of mini-carrots. Found this recipe in the 1998 TOH book. This really hit the spot!

Really simple and tasty way to make carrots. This will be my new go to recipe for carrots when I want to change up my menu choices. Made for your 2013 Superbowl win.

Five stars for such an easy and tasty carrot dish! It was a perfect accompanyment for Moroccan Pilaf and Lamb Chops With Moroccan Spices I expect that I will be making carrots this way many, many more times. I was not careful with my measurements and made enough for 2. I used all of the apricot preserve but would scale it back next time to the more appropriate 1/8 cup.

I have been learning to eat carrots more this last year, as they have never been one of my favorite veggies, but this can, definitely, be entered into my “But I'm Eating More Carrots, Julie� cookbook. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Jim. Made for a fellow Vagabond during ZWT 6.
