Tasty side dish. I did use the most pathetic tasting carrots ever so I added additional sugar both with cooking (white) and when reheating (brown), reminds me why I am to buy only organic carrots, I used very soft sulfured (orange) dried apricots so I did not soak them the full amount of time, the other two ingredients and no optional parsley. Nice as a side dish to, Kariokor Nyama Ya Kuchoma (Barbecued Meat Rub, Kenya), which we had with Coriander Rice and an onion raita for a good meal. I would make these again with sweet organic carrots. Made for ALMOST 5 GAME.

I really enjoyed this carrot recipe. I didn't add the parsley, but the combined tastes of the apricots and carrots were surprisingly good! Made for 123 Hit Wonders!
