    Velouria's Note:

    I never really enjoyed eating cooked carrots until I found this recipe. It comes from a cookbook by Mark Bittman. I prefer making this with the butter and maple syrup. It makes a great combination.

      Simple and very delicious. The maple syrup enhanced the natural sweetness of the carrots. So simple to prepare on a busy week night and quick but elegant for a side to a formal dinner. Thanks Velouria. (Have made this again with the sugar - it's that good and soooo simple!!)

      I made these last night and they were almost gone before the fried Swai hit the table. My mistake in thinking the family would hold off until I sat down. haha I used the maple sugar option and will definitely stick with that option. On the plus side, I did get an extra serving of fish as a compensation for their behavior.

      Quick, as promised, and tasty - these went over well with everyone. I opted to use maple syrup.
