AN EASY GLAZED CARROTS RECIPE

I don’t know about you but I’m a side dish kinda gal. I think that is what I love most about buffets and potlucks – all the side dish choices! I get positively giddy. I think I could fill an entire plate up with sides and be as happy as a clam. One of my favorites are these maple glazed carrots.

CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE MAPLE SYRUP?

Absolutely! You can use honey instead of maple syrup. You can use real maple syrup or the corn syrup kind found in grocery stores. Whatever your family loves and will eat!

    Will be making a 15 pound batch for a large gathering at scout camp— have not made them in awhile but got great reviews in the past

    Love this recipe! I was wondering the same as Janet. Will this recipe work in a slow cooker? If so, how long should I cook it and at what setting?

    I always do something similar to yam and sweet potato, but never thought of baby carrots. This is a great idea. And I always bake the yam or sweet potato first then just coated them with syrup. Because I am always afraid to burn the syrup if cooking it for too long. this time, guess I will try baby carrot. 🙂

    I just printed out several of your recipes that I have read throughout the year- and thought they looked wonderful. Now it is my goal to make each one. I know that my family will enjoy them.

    Your little boy is precious. I have 2 sons, ages 21 and 23.

    Thanks for sharing with us. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  5. My fridge just broke and I'm trying to cook all the contents! This is just perfect for our mini carrots.

  6. YES oh YES! I'm a side dish kinda gal too! I love glazed carrots – this is such a simple recipe too. And homemade maple syrup can't be beat either. Thanks much for sharing.

  7. Carrots are a hit at home, ever more making this recipe you have shared, nice and glossy looking carrots.

  8. I make glazed carrots for a snack all the time…. A little honey, a little dill, some cooked carrots. Perfection.

  9. AH-mazing!! I love side dishes too. I LIVE for the side dishes during Thanksgiving, haha. I love your carrots! My mom and I make something VERY similar to this. They are a fantastic side. Sweet and crunchy and delish!

  10. Ok, I admit it; I'm a buffet gal as well. I love trying all the new dishes provided.

    Side dishes are what make the world go round. Maple and carrots; yum. This looks fantastic.

  11. Definitely a family favorite here — we use the "real" stuff too and I was pleased to get a quart of the good stuff from our trip to Vermont this past summer!
