Absolutely delicious.

I used ordinary carrots cut into strips and it works fine. I accidentally used cider vinegar but a little bit less than stated but worked out fine. I was convinced they would make the carrots taste vinegary but didn't...I just had the effect of making the carrots not taste too sweet. Very nice and would make these again.

I used baby carrots and roasted for 30 minutes. Used balsamic vinegar and honey and it tasted really good. Will be doing this again.

I've just eaten these carrots and they were a really nice and tasty way to ring the changes with carrots. I didn't have small carrots so used large ones cut into long, thick strips and it worked great. Next time I will cook more because they do shrink down in the roasting process and maybe add a little less white wine vinegar?? But lovely and sweet.

Served the carrots as a side dish and garnish with risotto, they looked great and were delicious, would make again.

Didn't have any white wine vinegar, so used balsamic instead. Very nice would do again.

This is a simple and delicious way to cook carrots. This time I added a pinch of caraway seeds and it made an even better accompaniment to Chicken Chasseur.

Made this to go along with my roast chicken dinner... it was quite a hit! I also got requests to make it again both from my husband and our friend who was dining with us. I gladly will!

I made these to go with roast lamb today, and they were delicious. Really easy to make.

Wonderful! We had these carrots with our roast chicken this evening and they stayed wonderfully crunchy, with a fabulous sweet-sour flavour. I'll definitely make this again!
