Jim's Comments:

I made these in a 1 1/2 quart slow cooker.

As you can see, I didn't use baby carrots. I had two larger sized carrots that I peeled and sliced using a mandolin for uniform sizing.

As one of us is a diabetic, I cut back quite a bit on the brown sugar, to about 1/4 cup non-packed.

The carrots were too sweet for the diabetic to eat and a majority were left. I thought that they were on the sweetish side, but the carrot/sauce combination was worth the effort. The carrots were perfectly cooked (or so I thought), but the sauce was dominant.

I think that this one is worth trying again, mainly because I'd like to see a more thinner sauce rather than the thick sauce that the recipe provided. Already I thinking that not using the cornstarch will provide me with a sauce that I'm looking for.
