    When making this recipe I steamed the baby carrots, but other than that followed this easy to make recipe & had A VERY, VERY TASTY CARROT SIDE! Definitely a keeper of a recipe, & I can see myself making this again ~ Skewering pineapple tidbits along with a carrot on a small toothpick would make an unusual & very tasty addition to a finger food counter!

    I always like seeing side dish entries in the contests! I made this to serve with Recipe #46922. The recipe goes together well and the result is pretty. I made the sauce in the microwave. The sweet pineapple does mix well with the carrots. The rest worked together too although I would reduce the cinammon next time. Thanks for a creative entry! Good luck in the contest!

    DH and I enjoyed this carrot dish. I used pineapple chunks in their own juice,they were quite large so cut them in half. The spices and the sweet honey were delicious on the carrots and the pineapple. I really liked the taste of the cinnamon and cardamon combination. Congrats to the chef! Prepared for RSC #13.

    We tried both carrot recipes entered & found that we enjoyed the addition of pineapple in this one. The spices would have been too heavy without the tangy, sweet pineapple to compliment them. I cut the pineapple down to tidbit size for this, as I didn't think the large chunks would appeal to my family. Thank you for sharing your creation! Made for RSC Lucky #13.

    I had some pineapple rings in the fridge and was glad to be able to use them in such a delicious way! I used normal carrots, chopped, and cooked until tender. made the sauce and added it, how easy is that! We enjoyed this, the pineapple almost gives the carrots an Asian flair! I would certainly make this again. Made for RSC#13
