We liked this, it wasn't too much like some glazed carrots are. I left out the oil and just cooked them in the water at the start. We will make these again, we used baby carrots too.

These were pretty tasty. I used baby carrots and didn't bother slicing them. They cooked up quickly and had a nice flavour. The syrup wasn't very syrup-y (it reduced and pretty much disappeared really quickly). Which was fine - if there was any more sugar the dish would be too sweet... as is, it was just right :)
