Cook 4 to 6 prepared carrots for 5 minutes. Drain and cut into thin pieces. (Cut into a style that is attractive.) Combine ¾ cup sugar, ¾ cup white vinegar, ¾ cup water, 1 teaspoon mustard seed, 2 sticks cinnamon (broken), and 3 whole cloves. Simmer 10 minutes. Pour over carrots. Cool. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Drain well and place in a nice serving bowl to accompany a holiday (or other) dinner. We really enjoy Sweet and Sour Spiced Carrots with turkey, chicken, or ham. The carrots are very tasty! Enjoy!!! --Betty
