I made some tonight to go with my braised pork. They were yummy. The mint really adds a nice surprise

I've never used any of these ingredients for carrots before, but have used brown Sugar Twin, light margerine and baked in the oven in a casserole dish til done. This sounds good to me!

Sure you can use honey or even brown sugar. just be sparing with those two items as they can get away from you.

This is another dish I will try. It sounds like something to have on a TV night. I have almost all of the ingredients already on hand. Thanks
