Question: If I use baby carrots, would the temp and/or time need to be changed?
Baby carrots should take 20-25 minutes!
I made this recipe with 5 lbs carrots for Thanksgiving. I didn’t have a pan large enough to accommodate whole carrots so I cut them into quarters. I also don’t use brown sugar so used molasses instead. Other than that I followed the recipe. They were a HUGE hit and we had none left over. Not a single one. The sauce was both savory and sweet Ave complemented the sweetness of the carrots perfectly. I will make this again…just for us.
Thanks for sharing, Leigh!!
