These were amazing and so easy although I do agree with other posters that 7-8 minutes wasn't long enough to get them tender and the reduction time took a solid 5 min or more. These took around 25 minutes start to finish but because there was no prep I was able to go about my business. I added freshly grated nutmeg at the end which added an unexpected punch, and used light brown sugar instead of white. This one is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are awesome. I added a little fresh ground pepper corns and threw them in a 400° oven to get another layer of flavor after they were tender. Really simple and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Don't know what baby carrots she used, at 15 minutes mine were still so hard I couldn't stick a fork in them. Other than changing the time to 25 min. and 15 to boil off the water, this recipe is great! Try adding a bit of ginger, too, item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was looking for a recipe to help lower the potasuim content of the baby carrots because I love them uncooked. Tried this recipe out and am not really impressed. Need to keep looking for some way to have nice cooked carrots. Anyway, thanks for it. They are soft; but not as sweet as I expected them to be for the amount of sugar I added. After a few; I tried adding allot more sugar to it (after it was cook, obviously and it was etable. THanks Tamer item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE this recipe. Never liked cooked carrots except in soups and stew but decided to try this. My husband and I love it and I am sure when my 6 month old can eat solid foods he will enjoy them as well. Takes a little longer than 15 minutes but that's not a problem for me. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
