My daughter and I enjoyed this very much my husband not so much. Of course it wasn't quite fair to serve it to him as he doesn't like carrots much except mixed with other foods and he doesn't care for spices much. I served it with roasted chicken. By the way a recipe so similar that it can't be a coincidence appears on - the method shown here is superior. I simmered my carrots at least 10 min. maybe a little more. Read More

Favorite cooked carrot dish I've been making this dish since I first saw it in 2004. Cooking times vary depending on the freshness and quality of the carrots. I'm going to make a mess of these delicious carrots to eat over the next several days with my garden's first carrots. Mm! Pros: Bursting with flavor healthy Read More

The 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice seems to negate the other interesting spices. I might try a little less lemon juice next time. Read More

i'm not a fan of carrots and this is the only way i would eat carrots. i pre-steam the carrots so they turn out softer. Read More

The prep time is inaccurate. I had to keep simmering them for more than 30 mins for any hint of tenderness. Maybe shredded carrots would have been a better idea. The spices used (and I used a bit more than recommended) did nothing to complement/ameliorate the strong raw-ish carrot taste. Did not live up to expectations Read More
