Glazed Carrots With Pecan, Apricot, & Raisin Sauce - P.c.

Total Time

I doubled this recipe and it filled an 8x8 2-quart casserole dish. This had visual appeal, making it a good take-along dish. Serve this dish with roasted turkey, chicken, or pork. It has "zing", so gauge your children's taste buds. This recipe won my "appliance cook-off" between the pressure cooker and the crockpot. From Toula Patsalis, "The Pressure Cooker Cookbook".

VERY, VERY NICE CARROT SIDE! I really liked the combo of orange, apricot & raisins in this dish (oh, yes, including the toasted nuts!), & the easy of preparation! A great, great way to present the carrot! Thanks for the keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my vegetarian teammates in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap II]
