My ex-husband used to make brandied carrots and of course, he never wrote down the recipe. I wonder if I could substitute brandy for the white vinegar??

Hello! - Yes, you can substitute brandy for the white vinegar. Enjoy :)

these were perfect. i use fresh baby carrots instead of canned. i make them for every holiday which rocks because you make the day before and they reheat great in the microwave. what a help for a busy cook on holidays!

These were good. Next time I won't put quite as much white vinegar in it. I also thought they were better left over, after refrigeration. (I used the canned carrots.)

these were awesome. i used 1 16 oz. bag of fresh baby carrots which i julienned and steamed in the microwave first, then followed directions and they do taste better eaten the next day reheated in the microwave.

if i wanted to use fresh carrots instead, how much should i use?

Fresh is way better! I do not use canned vegetables, they're gross!

Yum and easy
