"Carrots rich and sweet, a Moroccan side dish that goes well with middle eastern-style dishes. Very quick to make. If you don't like the idea of combining raisins with carrots, leave them out--it will still taste good. To feed more people, just add a carrot per person. I also like to make this for holiday meals sometimes, because they seem a little "special.""

"VERY tasty! The onion keeps it from being too sweet. Finally a carrot recipe where there are no leftovers! Made for "I've saved all these recipes!" March Diabetic Tag."
"Amazing carrots. So simple and just a few ingredients, but the combination...wow. Everyone at dinner said these were good carrots. A keeper. Definitely going on my regular rotation. I did reduce the butter to 2 tbps instead of the 4 tbsp (1/4 cup) called for in the recipe. Still excellent."
"What a great way to dress up a carrot side dish, without it being a carrot-raisin salad! AND, so easy to make, too! I doubled the recipe & three of us ate it all! This recipe will make a nice addition to my vegetarian cookbook ~ Thanks so much for sharing it!"
"What a great recipe. I think it would be great as is, but I did make a couple of changes based on what I had availble. I only had one carrot, and had some yellow squash to use up, so I used both for 1 large serving. I also subbed dried figs for the raisins and the flavor was great. I tossed them in with the rest of the veggies in the first step and they softened up nicely. Definitely a keeper!"
"Easy and yummy. I used some leftover white merlot and golden raisins. My friend who doeasn't like carrots went back for seconds and took home leftovers. 'Nuff said."
"SweEEEEET and oh so good. What child wouldn`t enjoy these? You have sweetness from the onions, raisins and carrots. Hope you have a sweet tooth. I sauteed the onions for 5 minutes then added the remaining ingredients and cooked for 20 minutes. At this point I removed the carrots then reduced the juices to a nice thick syrup and poured over the carrots. Thanks!"
"These carrots are amazing. We've made them quite a few times and they are always delicious. "
""These are awesome carrots!" was the response I got from my husband and I have to agree. I used a shallot instead of the onion, because our daughter doesn't like the taste of onions and thay are a bit milder. Yum! :) "
"This was different and quite good. I would agree I like the oder it gave off and complimented with the taste. "
"This recipe has become a regular in our house. Everyone just loves it! When I make it, there are rarely any leftovers. The house is filled with a wonderfully sweet, spicy, savory fragrance! Of course, the only change I have made is to use margarine instead of butter, as we are on an extremely tight budget."
"We really enjoyed these carrots, quite different! and good. I just made half a recipe for the two of us and it worked out just fine. Love the touch of sweetness from the raisins and the wine and butter added a richness to them. The nutmeg was a nice finish with the brown sugar. We will make these again, thanks for sharing a good one."
