I used a very crisp pears, steam the carrots for about 8 minutes and then tossed the pears into the steamer and steamed them for just a few more minutes. The amount of butter / glaze is over kill. I scaled that way back, just enough to lightly coat the carrots and pears. The pears are naturally sweet as are the carrots, they just need a light coating of glaze. The cinnamon in the glaze is a nice touch. Very good!

Very good; I'm just not sure why the pears are needed... I don't like pears, so I left them out, and followed the rest of the ingredients. Also, I don't have a steamer, and I like my carrots cooked through, so I just boiled some carrot slices for about 7 minutes, drained them and set the carrots aside. Then I mixed the rest of the ingredients together in the melted butter - once it was all combined well, I added back in the carrots until they were well-coated. They were fantastic, and very close to what I was looking for, but I'm only giving this 4 stars because, like another reviewer, I thought the directions were much too complicated for something that didn't need to be. Thanks for sharing!

Much to labor intensive. Carrots can be steamed for 5 minutes, and then you can throw in the Pears for another 5 minutes. The recipe says simmer the butter/brown sugar part for 5 to 10 minutes. Ha! I didn't get to 5 minutes and the sauce was burnt. Just simmer until the brown sugar dissolves......and combine. After all this fooling around....my Easter dish "experiment" was a disaster. But I'll try the recipe again MY WAY!

I had carrots and I had pears so I went for it. Glad I did. It is very hard to find recipes that the whole family liked, but this one was liked by 8 out of 8 at the Easter table. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because I save that for the "really really gotta try this" recipes. This is a good safe vegetable side dish with just a little wow factor. As a side note: It seemed like you may not need all of the glaze. Flavor is right, just might be good with a little less.
