Thankyou for a way to get my 20 mth old DD to eat carrots, I've had them honeyed before but this is so much better. Great recipe, thanks! For ZWT III

I made this for Christmas dinner, it was delicious! I was surprised how little was left. I used cornstarch to thicken it a bit because I tripled the recipe. I also added a sprinkle of dill weed for colour. Thanks for this great new way to serve carrots.
