My sweet husband, has a sweet tooth. Actually he has a whole set, I am fairly sure each one is an independent sweet tooth. When he proposed this recipe, I was skeptical. While I do enjoy sweets, they usually fall into the dessert category.
As it turned out we had all the ingredients, so what the heck, lets have some Marmalade Carrots.
And you know what, they are good. Not as sweet as I had originally feared they might be. And this would make a great side dish to go with ham or for those folks that do not like sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving and other holidays. Another plus is how easy these are to prepare, put them in the cooker and go about your day. Take a look here.....
