      Simple and delicious. I used chicken stock and the reduction time for me was aprox. 10 minutes on high heat. :)

      I was looking for a change from my usual carrot recipe and I'm so glad I tried this one. Fantastic! I used 1 1/2 pounds of baby carrots. I also used condensed chicken broth and honey in place of the sugar. It did reduce down to a syrup consistency using these. The broth gave the carrots a wonderful flavour! This recipe is delicious as is but would also be easy to play around with, using different flavoured broths and herbs. Excellent!

      I used water instead of chicken broth. It tasted very good and brought out the natural sweetness of the carrots. I think this gets 5 stars for simplicity, but if one uses some herbs/greens, it may taste more authentic. (BTW: I also accidentally destroyed a pan by not watching the reduction closely.)
