    Do you think this would work with whole milk instead of heavy cream? I looked through the reviews and saw that some people used half and half but I don't have that either.

    Like another reviewer, I left out the sugar, because I like the natural sweetness of carrots. I don't think I could have waited a day to eat these--they were delicious! I think the sauce would be good with other vegetables as well. Thanks for posting!
    These were fantastic! My DS's have discovered they like cooked carrots and we have been trying them different ways. Both boys had seconds on these!! Made as is and would not change a thing! Made for PRMR 5/2010.

    Delicious! I didn't add the sugar, because I find carrots to usually be sweet enough, and I doubled the nutmeg. Very nice change from just steamed carrots.

    I made this on Sunday,it worked out well.The only comment I have is the listing of 8 carrots.Here in Canada these come in all sizes,so I took a quess ,picked 8 similar shaped and size and then measured for future reference.I used about 4 cups of carrots and the balance seemed to work out correctly.I have recorded the number,and will make again.thanks.Don Steele

    Delicious! Reminds me of the creamed peas that my mother makes except subtly sweeter. Made it during the cool of the morning--appreciate make ahead recipes when the temps escalate! Used fat free half and half, and because I only had 2 carrots and some leftover peas I added the peas to it. I drained them thoroughly in a colander then put them back into a warm pan so they dried off nicely. Thanks for posting, Syd. Made for PRMR.
