The lemon in this gives the dish a bright flavor and balances the sugar well. You could pre-cook your carrots and then re-warm and glaze just before serving. Thanks!

I have made this both as written and tweaked it a bit as well and liked it both ways. It's great as written and you should definitely try it that way. My tweaks... I tend to use packaged baby carrots since we usually have those on hand and it's less prep time than whole carrots. If you are on a budget, whole carrots are more economical, though. I also prefer to steam my carrots instead of boiling them, because I like them to be soft but still have a slight crunch. When making the sauce, I tend to also cut back a slight bit on the brown sugar and add a splash of vanilla, but otherwise follow the directions.

We really, really liked this one! I gave it 4 stars, though, just because I couldn't get the glaze to thicken up a little bit more, and the carrots were starting to get mushy. It had a fabulous flavor though! We made with grilled Ham steaks and roasted brussel sprouts. Will absolutely make again!
