Delicious Carrots

Delicious Carrots created by kiwidutch

My favorite way to make carrots now; I got the recipe from my mom, who made them at Christmas last year. They have a delicious flavor and aren't overly sweet. If you can't find the petite carrots, use regular carrots cut into matchsticks or baby carrots cut lengthwise into halves or quarters.

    I liked these a lot! I don't often make cooked carrots so it was time to do so again. I like them better cooked than raw. These are very good and easy! I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing!

    These were easy to make. Hubby likes his carrots "cooked" so I followed another reviewer and cooked mine in the microwave before adding to the skillet. I didn't add the nutmeg as I am not a fan. These were good and enjoyed by all.

    This was super easy, I like my carrots a little mushier than most people, so I microwaved them for a few minutes before adding them to the skillet. Added a tablespoon of worcheshire sauce, as I thought it needed a little more flavor.

    I cheated today bought some little carrots from the pre prepared section of the supermarket and these were machine scraped clean, so in the photo they look a little rough on the outside. However they taste lovely and I enjoyed these very much. DH liked them less, but carrots are not his most favourite of veggies. These were quick and easy to make and the nutmeg gives a lovely flavour that I especially liked. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a recipe that I will be making again. Thanks!
