Maple Glazed Carrots


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope today finds you blessed with an abundance of love, happiness, and of course, food. This year, I’m having a very low-key day by celebrating the holiday at home with just my pet family, but I’m still planning on having a scrumptious dinner with the traditional fixin’s. I always make carrots as one of my side dishes, and usually cook them with some honey, but decided to try them with maple syrup last night. I only taste-tested a couple, as I’m saving them for today’s “big” feast, but they were amazing. And, the fact that there’s only four ingredients and are super easy to make, is an added bonus!

Ingredients

  • Approximately 25 baby carrots
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup

Directions

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add carrots and cook until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain & set aside.
  2. Combine butter, 1/4 cup water, and maple syrup  in large skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. When butter is melted, mix in carrots and cover. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer.
  4. Cook until most of liquid evaporates, stirring frequently, approximately 8 minutes.
  5. Uncover, stir, and cook one more minute.
  6. Enjoy!
