The carrots are naturally sweet. I've made this recipe a few times and varied the amount of sugar I've used to try and find the right amount. At the moment I think one and a half teaspoons is just about right. Other than the sweetness, the recipes is lovely and the carrots taste excellent.

These were OK but I've done nicer flavoured roast carrot recipes. I found that the caramel was verging towards burnt before the carrots were tender.
