Source of recipe: This recipe comes from My Aunt Nancy. When I moved into my first apartment, my aunt gave me a recipe book with some of her signature dishes. She said to serve this when I wanted to impress my guests!

This was a nice dish.  I needed some ideas for the gigantic bushel of carrots I have from my garden.


This is an amazing dish!  I made it for myself and loved it so much I made it for my family Christmas day.  The carrots and raisins complement each other perfectly to create a lightly sweet, elegant side dish.  I sprinkled the almonds on before cooking so they could toast, stirred the dish after a half hour, then cooked it for an additional half hour.  DELICIOUS- thanks Dink/Aunt Nancy!
