“I discovered all of my lemonade mix was gone except for 1 tblsp. I had just opened a can of sliced carrots. This recipe was born. So simple but makes carrots delicious. Double the recipe for two cans of sliced carrots if you wish. You may use any sugar variety including Splenda blend brown sugar. I had requests to serve more than one can at the next meal. Microwave or stovetop. Your choice.”
