Spicy Glazed Carrots

Carrots are one of the foods that I could feed my family every week and they would never complain, we just love them especially when they are fresh from the garden. Carrots are one of the root vegetables that we plant every year in the garden and we always look forward to the first signs of the little tops peaking out of the ground. This recipe for Spicy Glazed Carrots is a little different but very kid friendly, our little ones loved the carrots. The recipe is a fresh combination with a flavor that brings a different taste to carrots.
