I have never eaten Cracker Barrel carrots so not sure if they taste like cracker barrels or not. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the salt at all. I also used Splenda brown sugar as that is all I buy. I also cooked these on the grill. I put all the ingredients in a 13x9 aluminum pan, covered and grilled. Good sweet carrots. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
I hate to give such a low review but I followed your recipe exactly. I thought a teaspoon of salt sounded like a lot but I added it anyway because I like to follow the recipe as it is posted. These carrots turned out way to salty. I was making these to serve at our store for lunch but I had to throw them out. Next time I will cut the salt down to about 1/4 teaspoon.
