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 ;)

I love the basics of this recipe. I eyeballed the ingredients and made it with lots of fresh mint and it was terrific. I will add this to my favorite recipes.

Too sweet and couldn't taste the mint.

Try this recipe! I didn't know what to expect with the mint but it was a wonderful touch. Simple enough to through together anytime but would be a great choice to side with an eloquent meal.
