Oh yum, Bergy, these carrots are so good, we just couldn't get enough of them, these are better than candy!, I had pistachio nuts left over from Christmas in the freezer, otherwise I will mabey try cashews next time, I really think that this recipe would be just as good with any kind of nuts. I made these carrots to go with my brisket, (doubled the recipe)... and my family just went crazy over these. I will for sure be making these again, this is a winner...thanx Bergy for posting :-)
Wow, this is just soooooo good, Auntie Bergy! I love fresh carrots and just like you, I too enjoy my veggies a bit on the crisp side which is how I usually eat 'em. I really loved this recipe. I did add 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon instead of 1/8tsp. I did not have pistachios on hand, so I used cashewnuts as a substitute. Thank you for the recipe! Really love it:-)
FANTASTIC!! These are just great Bergy - I mixed all the ingredients together on a low heat in a fry pan, then added the raw carrots and cooked until the carrots were to my liking - still a bit crunchy. I loved the tartness of the lemon & the sweetness of the honey & cinnamon - the combination is fantastic. Thanks for a Winner Bergy !!!!

On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
