    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These carrots are a must at your next turkey dinner or any dinner!... I have made them many times, and everyone loves them! Make certain to quarter the carrots lengthwise, the cut them into about 2-1/2-inch pieces. It makes for a really nice presentation. You will love these! If you are a cayenne fan, then add in more to taste. The combination of spices will bring the carrots to a next level! If you are feeding more than 5-6 people, then I suggest to double the recipe.

      These spicy little guys were a nice change of pace from the usual glazed carrots. I halved the recipe and it worked out fine. I used only 1/4 cup of water, but I might use a little less next time. By the time the glaze cooked down, my carrots were a little softer than I like them. But I might like them with a little more crunch than most.

      These were okay - a bit of a bite but not a whole lot of overall flavour.

      Had intended to cut back on the cayenne a little bit, then didn't, & we really enjoyed these GREAT TASTING CARROTS! Will definitely be making these again & again! Thanks much for the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC]
