Took a bit longer than 5min for glaze to thicken. Tastes great.

I think I was thinking this glaze would be more on the sweet side and it wasn't. Once I added a little bit of sugar, the flavors came together much better. I was looking for something to kind of mask the vegetable taste :)

These were good but had a heck of a time trying to find apricot. Its in the juice section of the store. Seem to be too much apricot, I would cut down on it next time. This is a keeper.

WOW! These were great! I couldnt find the Apricot Kerns, so I just used Polaner All Fruit Apricots and they were AWESOME! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

I made this for our Mother's Day meal (glazed ham) and everyone loved them. Since it was for a crowd I doubled the carrots and all ingredients except for honey and I only used one can (11.5 oz.) of the apricot nectar. For convenience I steamed the carrots in the microwave and cooked the sauce in a small pan on the stove until thickened. When the carrots were done I drained them, topped them with the butter and honey and poured the sauce over them. Easy and delicious.

One cup of apricot nectar was excessive...I think you could use about a half that and it would still work out well. Otherwise, a VERY tasty recipe.
