VictoriaC68333 posted 7th June 2009 - you said that this recipe with these carrots was absolutely delicious. Can you please tell me, is the recipe right, it states 3 tbsp (tablespoons) caster sugar? can this be right, or is it 3 tea spoons? I grow these Chantenay carrots and they are sweet in there own right, so why would you want to put 3 tablespoons sugar in to cook them?? Can you please clarify this recipe for me, as I am totally perplexed??? Many thanks Viv
