This side dish was served with weinerschnitzel and it was a perfect pairing!
Used fresh organic carrots which were steamed then whirled everything minus
the cranberries in a mini food processor (recipe was cut in half.) I saved the steaming
liquid and used about 2/3 cup to help puree the carrots to desired consistency. I might try
fresh ginger next time or a combination of parsnips and carrots. Simple! Made for Best of 2011. Thanks!

Oh boy I loved these carrots! I made just as directed and would not change a thing. I used my small food processor and the carrots came out so nice and creamy; the cranberries were a great addition too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These were interesting but good carrots. I was hoping the carrots would have more of a whipped potato texture, but these were more wet. The cranberries were a great addition and I think I would put a little more brown sugar in next time. Made fo Newest Zaar.
