I used Truvia instead of white sugar and Trop 50 brand orange juice. My family loved these carrots and I literally could not stop eating them. VERY tasty. NOTE: I had a serving and a half leftover this morning that I made into a Carrot-Banana Smoothie.......just as great in my smoothie, lemme tell you.

Very good side dish and quick to prepare. I used Splenda and will bump up the amount of ginger next time just because I liked that flavor in this. The OJ and the ginger work together nicely in this recipe. Thanks, larkspur, this is a keeper.

I made this tonight to go with my roast pork... and it turned out wonderful, I did change one ingredient which was instead of sugar, I put in honey. Added the ginger to taste as well ... think it ended up being about half a tsp... Wonderful recipe and it's going to be a part of turkey dinners of the future!
