for 8 minutes, or until they are just tender.
- In a skillet cook the garlic in the oil over moderately low heat,
stirring, for 1 minute, or until it is fragrant.
- Add the cumin, the cinnamon, the sugar, the cayenne, and the carrots,
and cook the mixture, stirring, for 1 minute, or until the carrots are

transfer the carrots to a bowl, and let them cool to room temperature.
Comments: 11/30/2011 - I used 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne and I used
lime juice instead of lemon.
3/19/2013 - I used the juice from one lemon; it was a little too strong. I also
served it warm.
3/12/2020 - I used three large carrots and doubled the amount of spices.
I used the juice from 1/2 lime, and cooked it in the microwave for 4 minutes total.
