      I was looking for a good and diabetic way to use baby carrots up--I started off with such noble thoughts of raw carrots, but....I found this, and fixed them with fresh orange instead of lemon juice and zest--it came out to about half an orange (with a little-about half to a full teaspoon- pulp, taken while I juiced the orange) in it. It was a really tasty way to fix cooked carrots, without all the added sugar and fat (I also used the spray butter instead of butter or margarine-twenty squirts for the whole thing.) I will be much more likely to enjoy carrots with my meal with these carrots on hand, already cooked!

      Really easy to make and delicious. We gobbled it up which is always a good sign. I added a bit more lemon zest and steamed my carrots rather than microwaving them. It was an perfect side dish. Thanks so much.

      I loved the microwave instructions. It cooked the carrots perfectly, with just the right amount of bite. The flavor was light but delicious. I didn't feel overwhelmed with a sugary flavor that many other glazed carrot recipes have. This is a keeper!
