Nice change from regular carrots - I used a steam in bag and then just added the rest of the ingredients. I only used 2 Tbsp. of light butter and a splash of lemon juice. These turned out to be very sweet. Read More

These were just OK. The lemon taste was too strong for my liking and I could hardly taste the ginger (I used 1/8 tsp). Might be better with less lemon juice and more ginger. Read More

Used a couple of grates of fresh gingerroot instead of powder and a couple of grates of lemon rind in addition to lemon juice and it was delicious. I served it with fresh fish and it was light enough & flavorful (a tough combination to find for carrots). Husband and 7 year old liked it. Read More

Very easy and a nice flavor. I cook the carrots longer to get the flavors mingle. It takes even better the next day reheated! Read More

These were so delicious and easy! I steamed the carrots first and then added them to a pan to warm the remaining ingredients. I also used about a 1/2 tsp. ginger. Read More

OK recipe. Made it exactly per directions. Next time I'll add MUCH more ginger and 1/3 the lemon with somewhat less butter; original amount of butter added a too-greasy character I thought. 2nd time I forgot about this note and it was fine as specified but with more ginger and better than the orange juice ginger nutmeg recipe for carrots which I made at the same time (large group of guests). I liked the specified amount of lemon! Tastes change. Read More

Great taste I used peanut oil and stir-fried the carrots with fresh ginger. The added the honey and lemon juice and continued to stir-fry until the sauce was thickened. What a treat. Thanks Linda. iota Read More

These carrots were a very tasty side dish. I sliced my carrots rather thin as some other reviewers suggested. I also added extra ginger and used a little less butter. They turned out very tender and almost melted in my mouth! Next time I make it I will add extra carrots because I ended up throwing away a lot of extra sauce! Read More

I doubled the ginger to give it a little extra taste. Make sure the carrots are cut thinly. We had thought ours were but the cooking time took longer than we thought. The carrots were even better the next day when I ate them cold for lunch. Read More
