      Absolutely great way to serve carrots! Very flavorful, very satisfying! Think I'll be adding this to the dinner table this coming Saturday when my vegetarian son & his wife are here for a slightly late Thanksgiving dinner, when I do have a turkey breast, but everything else is strictly vegetarian! Thanks for this great keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

      Great recipe! My DH, who really does not care for carrots, gave this 5 stars. I loved the roasted taste of the carrots with the little bit of sweetness from the brown sugar and pecans. This would certainly make a great Thanksgiving side or Company dinner. Very easy to make and such a pleasant surprise from the vinegar. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, November, 2011.

      Five stars - I had company for dinner and had to print this recipe three times! Four people finished eight servings and ignored the meatloaf that was supposed to be accompanied by the carrots. DH said it was one of the best ways to eat carrots he ever tried. I think the addition of the vinegar is critical for the development of that fantastic flavour. Thanks for posting another winner, Mike!
