“This is from Eating Well, Fall 2004 issue. I have always despised cooked carrots, but have found it's because I don't like them with added sugars or brown sugars and I really hate them mushy. This is the first cooked carrot recipe that I really like and have made it repeatedly. I modified the original recipe so that the carrots are cooked to the bare minimum, and I've bumped up a couple of the seasonings to my tastes. I use a smoked paprika that's a little spicy, which is wonderful in this, but you could use whatever you have on hand. I've also just used "baby" carrots as a timesaver.”
