I made this for my daughter initially but became a family favorite quickly. The sauce can be pureed to whatever consistency you prefer, our family likes this better as a smooth puree.

I m not a fan of cooked carrots but this came out very well. It had a nice sweet flavor. I did cook it a little longer than stated and added a little extra water during the cooking procedure but that was the only change. Read More

I ALWAYS STEAM my veggies especially the ones like Carrots. It keeps the good stuff included from washing away. I do not use any sugars in my cooking. The Cinnamon is always good as it prevents your sugar intake from spiking. I use it instead of salt at the table. So there it is. Came out good enough to eat and tasted like carrots and whatever fruit you decide to use. A keeper. Read More

I really enjoyed this flavor mix. I even winged it putting too many carrots in and having too ripe pears so the consistency was not the best and we still liked it! We ate this as a side dish but I also topped some cooked peas and corn with this mix and found it all to compliment each other quite well. Read More
