Fresh cooked carrots topped with a sweet and sour raisin sauce. I like to add crumbled, cooked bacon just before serving.

DH wasn't too fond of this because he found it too sweet despite the vinegar. I liked it but also found it on the sweet side. My 3 year old wolfed down her carrots so the sweetness is a definite advantage when you have a somewhat fussy child on your hands. Easy recipe to make and worth trying for something different.
