I made these for Thanksgiving this year. I thought they were good and pretty simple to make and something I'd make again, but I didn't think they were knock your socks off good. I mean, they're carrots. BUT, I had three people tell me how good they were and one asked for the recipe. So, I guess as far as carrots go, they're pretty darn good LOL! I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth to make them vegetarian friendly.
A splash of rum and ginger-infused broth makes these thick-sliced carrots some of the best we've tried.
