"The sweet, minty sauce makes these carrots just a bit different. Even my husband, who says he doesn't like carrots, came back for seconds!"

dried mint, crushed
These carrots are delicious. I usually make candied carrots with maple syrup but decided to give this one a try and it was very good. I had leftover mint from some mojitos I made, so I used that instead of the dry kind, chooped finely.
I didn't feel that this was a bad recipe. For my taste, it was a bit sweet but it was a nice and simple glazed carrot recipe. I steamed quickly in the microwave, used light butter, splenda brown sugar, and slightly reduced the honey. I felt it could use more mint flavor. Perhaps it could be obtained by steaming the carrots with the mint or even putting the mint in with the butter to infuse and make more of a "mint butter" prior to adding the carrots and remainder of ingredients?
Great carrots! Sweet and the mint went very well in this dish. My husband ate all of his and he is really picky about his carrots. My only addition was a pinch of salt. He usually says something if I put anything in his carrots, but since I am the cook I do it anyway ;)
The mint added a taste that was delightful to my family.
By far the best recipe for carrots, this does make them sweet but in a completely delicious and not artificial way. The carrots were nice and tender and tasted fantastic with our baked pot roast recipe also from this site. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone even those who might not like carrots that much. I think this recipe would also be a good way to get kids to eat their vegetables.
Mmmm this was good. Definitely a keeper!!
