Great recipe. Even though I forgot about them as I was waiting for the glaze to reduce and they got a bit dark on the bottom, my guests really enjoyed them. Simple and easy preparation; great flavor.

Yum! These are very good. I made these as mashed carrots, skipping the oil, and just simmering them. I left out the cinammon and brown sugar, and added 1/2 tsp of paprika. These will dress up any table!
