Author Notes: I found the basics for this recipe in a magazine and then changed it over the years and doubled the glaze. It's sweet, savory and colorful. My family, which includes many little grandkids, love it. Company Carrots is a perfect accompaniment to any poultry dish or great with just a grilled steak. - 2nd Street Sue2nd Street Sue

Food52 Review: I made these to have with roast chicken. The fresh ginger and balsamic vinegar were nice, sharp notes in these glazed carrots. I cut reduced the jam to half a cup and that seemed to control the sweetness a bit. I also threw in some fresh lemon thyme, since my husband is anti-cilantro. These were tasty glazed carrots.
