This was terrific! I actually used baby carrots and used orange preserves instead of apricot. I think the orange was perfect for this dish!

This has to be the most tasteless dish I have ever eaten. I added extra apricot preserves, still nothing. I ended up tossing it. I can't even give it one star.

I made this tonight as a side veggie dish with the Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers. I tweaked it though cause didn't have apricot preserves. I used sugar free orange marmalade (that's what I had), and then did the recipe to exact. Oh gosh it was fantastic. My son loved it. Will make this again. Try it with the orange preserves....YUM.

I made these for Thanksgiving and got rave reviews, not sweet like the brown sugar glaze! The orange zest gives them just enough zing!

Excellant dish. I steamed the carrots instead of boiling.

These carrots were a nice change from the usual honey glazed. I used steam in bag baby carrots and sugar free smucker's apricot preserves. I didn't have orange zest, so I used orange juice. I added a little more nutmeg and salt and some dried parsley. Overall, pretty good.
