Once you let the alcohol cook out, you're left with a nice sweet sauce with just a hint of the bourbon flavor. Very nice, and VERY easy, too.

Just okay as written. Something is missing in the recipe to make it less candy tasting. Regardless, Thank You for sharing.

Delicious! What a great way to get the children to eat carrots. Don't worry, the alcohol cooks out and you would never know it was in the recipe. I didn't have Bourbon so I used Southern Comfort. This is a keeper!

Great recipe! Cook a little less to keep a little more crispness to the carrots. I've also been using Crown Royal Maple to give it an extra kick.

For those concerned about the alcohol, most alcohol is cooked out before adding, plus this is 8 servings. Do you leave vanilla out of baked goods that you serve to children? Here the bourbon is used as a flavoring, not an adult beverage.

Excellent! I microwave the carrots and added Jameson's Irish for having good luck to find a recipe easy and very useful for holidays or any meal. Thank you!

Made these for Easter. At very end, just before I poured hot glaze over the carrots I added about 1/4 tsp of fresh grated ginger. After pouring over carrots I added some fine black pepper and a little salt. It was wonderful!! A new favorite way to cook carrots and SO easy. ( I used bagged baby carrots- I had a lot since they are so much cheaper at warehouse clubs in large quantities!)

My husband loved these!! The only thing I added was one tablespoon of honey.
