These are very tasty, I also added some dried cranberries. I belive that the amount of liquid was left out of the recipe. I used just enough water to cover the carrots. I think you could use apple juice. I will be making this again.

Great recipe. I added some moist prunes to the pot and let my 11 year old prepare. It was her addition to the Rosh Hashannah dinner table.
