Best carrots ever!!, Member alaskangypsy

I wanted something easy to prepare for Christmas dinner for my husband and me. I liked the sound of these ingredients together. I usually have to ""hide"" vegetables in my husband's meals but for Christmas dinner, he ate these carrots first and went back for seconds (I did too). This recipe is excellent. I bought rum but forgot to put it in and I didn't toast the pecans either. I'm sure I cut back on the brown sugar and marmalade too since my husband is diabetic. Still, this recipe is the best! Easy too!!! Yummy:)
