My kids aren't big on carrots and I've been trying for ages to find a recipe that will change their minds. They loved these, so I guess I can cross that off the 'things to do' list!!. I thought they were great too! I have people eating cooked carrots now that never would before. Don't change anything - it's perfect as it is.

Oh my goodness, was this fantastic. I can honestly say it was one of the best recipes I've made from here and such a simple one. I didn't have an orange, but I had some concentrate so used that. Every single carrot was just beautifully covered in this thick glaze. I will always use this recipe!! Thanks

A somewhat underrated vegetable since it's both tasty and nutritious. It has a habit of shrinking when cooked, so always allow plenty.
