Great recipe! Followed recipe except used lemon juice, didn't have a fresh lemon. We loved it and so did our picky 4 year old. I was afraid it would too sweet but surprisingly it was perfect and great side dish! Printing recipe tomorrow for a keeper!
Great carrots! Made as written, but used regular-sized carrots. The amount of time for boiling was perfect and they were nice and crisp-tender. Served with just parsley on top since DSs think pepper is too 'spicy'. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
