I made these carrots today, and followed the recipe exactly, and my husband and I were both disappointed. My husband loves food, but he thought the apricot preserves made this taste unexpectedly weird. Neither of us went back for seconds. The recipe sounds really good, so I was surprised. Maybe it would be better with different preserves, and maybe added in sooner so that the flavor cooks into the carrots. Also, the carrots and onions turn brownish in the slow cooker, so it doesn't look pretty like the picture. Not sure if I'll try this again with different preserves.
