Stir in brown sugar, ginger, and salt; bring to a boil, and cook the carrots, stirring often, until the carrots are glazed, 2 to 3 minutes.

VERY GOOD! I served these carrots with flounder and mashed potatoes; and they not only were tasty they added a nice color to the dish. I will definitely be keeping this recipe. Thanks for sharing FROGHOPPER!

Sorry I felt the ginger was too over powering. We just didn't care for these. I'm sure it's our taste and has no reflection on the recipe since others who rated this really liked.

Delicious! I used Splenda brown sugar blend instead (measure half as much) and it was wonderful. I will make it again and again.

Candied Ginger Carrots' Haiku: "Slippery and sweet. Ginger was a unique touch. Perked up plain carrots." I followed Froghopper's recipe exactly and was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked these b/c I'm a carrot-purist (either crunch'n raw or steamed w/ a little EVOO s&p.) With the glaze they're a little slimy but the taste is sweet and unusual w/ that ample addition of ginger. Oh and as a little watch-yourself warning during the last boil/stir step my hands took a couple unexpected small burns as the glaze kept hopping around the pot much like a frog would:)

DH said these were awesome and I agree! I had to eyeball the amount of carrots since I was working out of a large Costco bag and I'm pretty sure I didn't add enough since I had glaze leftover in the bottom of the pan but it was great for dipping! These will be made again!
