This dish is great- simple to make and very tasty. I tested this recipe with about 1/2 pound of carrots, 1 tbsp of syrup and 1 tbsp of butter. It was great. Then I prepared the dish with the quantities listed and it was a lot less flavorful. I recommend doubling the amount of syrup and butter for a 2 lb bag of carrots. I also added pecans, which gave it a little twist of additional flavor.

I tried this recipe thinking that the maple syrup would really spruce up the basic sweetened carrots that I have been making for years. It did not. Aside from the amounts listed not being enough maple syrup and butter, the texture of the sauce was quite runny compared to the way I make it and also more expensive to make. I use butter or margarine along with either light or brown sugar with my carrots and they are so much better and also less expensive to make. I then add parsley to them primarily to dress them up and make them more appetizing to look at. I will continue to make what I call "candied carrots" using my method.

I liked the flavor, however, I made a couple modifications that made these carrots awesome. First, I roasted them with olive oil and salt at 375 for about 20 minutes, stirred and then turned the temp up on the oven to 425 for another ten minutes or so, or until tender. I then heated about two tablespoons of butter in a skillet on med high heat and added the carrots as well as two to three tablespoons of maple syrup. I let it bubble a little bit, stirring frequently, and the butter and syrup carmelized together, forming a very tasty, carmel. I served immediately. They were great like this!

This recipe was disappointing. There just wasn't much maple flavor. The carrots tasted like carrots and not like they had anything on them. Sorry, I doubt that we will be having them again.

Great recipe! I used Log Cabin syrup. Also, increased amount of syrup.

I, too, doubled the maple syrup and butter and added pecans. Very delicious and easy! Is already a family favorite for us. Chris

Good simple recipe. Adds a little sweetness to the carrots without overpowering them. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Exactly what I was looking for. I made this when we had company and I didn't want to serve plain carrots. The amount of syrup and butter was just right to give a unique taste while still letting the flavor of the carrots come through. Everyone loved them...there were no left overs!
