Good recipe, nice change for carrots. I couldn't really taste the apple cider. I think water might do the trick if you don't have cider. I did add brown sugar after tasting it and wanting it to be a little sweeter. I microwaved for 5 minutes, stirred and microwaved it for 5 minutes more. Thanks for the keeper!
Here's a very nice way to jazz up the ol' carrot! I did take a liberty or two with the recipe though, in that I used baby carrots, soaked the raisins in apple cider beforehand, AND then mixed the finished dish with about 2 cups of freshly-make & still-warm, chunky applesauce ~ We loved it served that way!

I may be a purist, because I didn't really like these carrots. My DS did like them though....although he refused to eat the raisins! So 4 stars for getting DS to eat cooked carrots....he only eats raw! I think there was too much cinnamon... would reduce it if I make these again. Thanks for posting a nice vegetable recipe!

My kids liked these carrots. One of my kids who told me that "Carrots are rabbit food, and I'm no rabbit", ate two helpings. I however, couldn't eat more than a few bites. I still can't stand carrots, so I must not be a rabbit either. My DH loved this style for making carrots and asked me to make them again soon. I think he liked the change of pace from the normal bag of frozen mixed veggies. I will make again, but I won't eat them. Lol. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag - Thanks! :)
