 2 bunches of carrots (approx. 10), peeled
 1-19 ounce (540 ml) can of pineapple rings/pieces 
   packed in sweetened juice
 2 tbsp. potato starch
 2 tbsp. honey
 1/2 cup (125 ml) slivered almonds
 1/2 cup (125 ml) raisins

 1. By hand or in the processor using slicing disc, slice
 carrots into coin-shaped discs. Place in saucepan
 with 1 cup (250 ml) water. Cover. Bring to a boil.
 Reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes over medium heat
 or until fork tender.

 2. Drain pineapple, adding 1/4 cup (50 ml) of the juice
 to the potato starch. Stir to make a smooth paste.
 Add remaining juice to carrots.

 3. Cut pineapple into bite-sized bits. Add to carrots.
