    Perfect side dish any time of year. I will be serving as an appetizer this Thanksgiving for the lactose intolerant guests that can't enjoy the cheese laden items so prevalent during the holidays. They deserve something better than a raw veggie tray and chips and salsa. I love carrots any way I can get them, and make these often just for myself.

    For starters, I didn't have any maple I used organic unprocessed wildflower honey and also organic prepared ginger root. very good. Will definitely have to try with maple syrup another time!

    I love these! My mom would also add a bit of grated orange peel and toasted almonds. Delicious and a staple during the holidays!
