My mother used to make this side dish and we all loved it. I remember anybody else she served it to really loved it also. The difference between the way she made it and the way I make it, is that she used to sauté the carrots in vegetable oil before cooking them with sugar and lime juice. One day I decided to make this side dish, without sautéing them in oil, and found out that it is just as delicious, it is fat free, and takes less time to prepare.
