      This is such a fabulous recipe. I thought it important to credit the source: America's Test Kitchen's The New Best Recipe.

      Mmmmmmmm! This dish is very easy to put together. I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so I didn't have to make a trip to the store. I used applewood smoked bacon and only used about half the amount indicated, since the bacon was sliced very thick. I also cut down on the brown sugar - just my preference. I bet this dish would be a hit with kids. I know Hubby sure liked it.

      To clarify the instructions ( for people like me who need every detail): #8. simmer until the carrots are almost tender when poked with the tip of a paring knife. #9. simmer until the liquid is reduced to 1-2 tablespoons.
      Thanks for sharing this recipe.
