I used bottled chestnuts left over from Thanksgiving. Delicious side dish, but a little too sweet. Next time I will just skip the step of "candying" the chestnuts and add them to the carrots and glaze at the end.

Like turning vegetables into candy, but surprisingly not too sweet or overly sugary. I would use whole carrots and cut into slices next time, since the baby carrots weren't quite tender enough. The chestnuts were tasty, although the sugar mixture never "dried" on them completely.
