I got this from my mother-in-law. It adds a nice tang to the carrots. I don't much like cooked carrots but this was fantastic. The carrots can either by julienned or cut into rounds.

I had a lot of left-over cooked carrots, so decided to try to dress them up. I fried an onion and added the other ingredients and cooked until I had a nice consistency, then threw in the left-over carrots to heat through. It was delicious. If I had made the carrots this way to start with, there would have been no left-overs!
By the way, I have cooked grated rutabaga this way for years, but hadn't tried this with carrots.
