Different recipes call for heating the sauce before marinating the carrots; others do not.  Check out the note that is included with the “Marinated Carrots Recipe” from the Bigner collection.

I personally have always heated my sauce before marinating the carrots.  I also use less sugar than this recipe calls for, this makes for a little more tangy dish, along with the bonus of having less sugar.
