This is a very old recipe that was handed down to my Mother from her aunt, who we called "Aunt El", and who has long since passed away. I just found the recipe as I was packing up boxes in preparation for a major move. I have no idea how many it serves because a "bunch" of carrots is anybody's guess. I think of it more as a condiment or something to serve at a barbecue. If Splenda is used for the sugar it can be a very low calorie dish. Also, the ingredients are generally on hand, so it's pretty economical. Thanks Aunt El!
