Delicious Carrots

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

My favorite way to make carrots now; I got the recipe from my mom, who made them at Christmas last year. They have a delicious flavor and aren't overly sweet. If you can't find the petite carrots, use regular carrots cut into matchsticks or baby carrots cut lengthwise into halves or quarters.

I liked these a lot! I don't often make cooked carrots so it was time to do so again. I like them better cooked than raw. These are very good and easy! I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing!
