Just finished enjoying this dish. Very easy to prepare. Has a good appearance and a great aroma. I'll probably cut the amount of jam down by about half in the future as it was a little too sweet for us.

My friend Mirj bought me a zester on a past trip to the states so I was looking for recipes that I could use it in. Since my family likes cooked carrots, this was perfect. It was a nice change from my standard sweet carrots and I thought the jam was a great idea. I cooked for someone else in our community who had twin boys and I made this as one of the side dishes. She called to tell me her whole family loved it and she wanted the recipe. She was excited it was so easy especially after having twins..

Excellent and easy. I substituted peach jam for apricot jam and used lemon pepper instead of orange zest. Great combination. Will definately make again.

My teenaged son asked for fruit with dinner tonight, so I made these. This is the first time that he ate his vegitables before anything else on his plate. I thought that there was too much nutmeg, next time I will use only an 1/8 of a teaspoon instead on 1/4. I would not change anything else about the recipe.

Now I know how to get my Hubby to eat his carrots! Before I made this, he would only eat them shredded in a salad. I enjoyed the sweetness of this dish very much. Thanks!

Yum! These carrots were so easy and delicious. I used peach jam and left out the orange zest because I didn't have any on hand, and we had a great veggie in no time flat! I will definitely be making these again.

Very good, but I needed to add more orange zest and a pinch of salt to get the sauce as zippy as I like it.

We love carrots and I served these on our Thanksgiving buffet. Everyone loved all the flavor this dish has and it was requested to adorn our table on Christmas, so carrots it is again real soon!

YUM!! I could hardly taste the carrots in this, the jam has just the right amount of sweetness and the nutmeg tops it off perfectly. I didn't have orange zest but I can't imagine this being any better! Thanks for sharing.

These were pretty good but for my taste they were too citrus-y. If I make them again, I think I will cut the sauce in half and leave out the orange zest. But, for an easy weeknight meal this is a great recipe! Thanks!
