The ingredients states baby carrots then the directions state to cut the carrots into 2 inch pieces??? Thats about what baby carrots are! My finale amount was 2 quarts of jarred carrots and had plenty of syrup! Which I cut back on the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and still was plenty sweet. I added 3 quarter size slices of fresh ginger root to the syrup. These are very sweet & tender crisp! These will be fine in the fridge for up to 2 weeks without processing them. That is if they last that long!!!:). You will see they just disappear for some reason! ;)
