My husband is not a huge cooked carrrot fan....he asked what I did to make the carrots SO good this time!!! I used only 2 t. of sugar and just a tad less than half a cup as I don't like my carrots too sweet. Theese went together exactly as the directions said and they turned out perfect. I KNOW these will be a repeat in our home.

Interesting flavor, I did expect them too be sweeter though. I used red balsamic vinegar, which did not make the dish terribly attractive. I would believe the white/clear balsamic vinegar would be a much better choice-but our Supermarkets do not carry that type. Didn't have any chives so used green onions. Thanks Lvs2Cook!

Absolutely delicious! I didn't add the chives as I didn't want the carrots to have an oniony flavour. We loved these.
