Moroccan Carrots

Aromatic with a scent of cumin, rouged with paprika and a balm of honey and balsamic vinegar, these are not Grandma's canned carrots. Serve them as a side dish with a roast or as part of a festive Mediterranean mezze (Middle Eastern antipasto) accompanied by warm pita wedges, store-bought hummus, stuffed grape leaves, and a selection of olives.
