These were very good. Easy to make. I think next time I'll try adding some fresh chives or garlic chives to it. A wonderful change from just boiled carrots. The pinch of sugar didn't seem to make any difference that I could tell but on the other hand everybody's pinches are different.

10 STARS for this! Absolutely delicious. I only made half the recipe and I regret that, since I could have just made a meal of this. Will be making this often! Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
I've been making this recipe for over 30 years now and it's always a winner. From the time they were young my kids only ate carrots this way. Also, this is really easy to make, can be made early in the day and reheated if you want.
