Loved your recipe. I have been expanding my vegetable experiences with carrots and yours was tasty. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
I liked these carrots. I used baby carrots and thought they were cooked enough but my brother thought they weren't done. I followed the directions as written. I have some leftover and I think I will cook them a little longer when I reheat them. Made for Newest Zaar Tag cooking game.
My dh & I love carrots. We have tried many carrot recipes on this site and Jackie let me tell you, this recipe is right up there with the best of them. They were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The carrots were, sweet, tender and very flavorful. I loved that you could actually taste, the carrots, shallots, orange juice, honey, ginger and cayenne. Sooo good, really nice balance between, sweet, spicy and hot. Thank you for sharing another new family favorite. Made for Aussie Swap/ May - 12.
