Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots
Author: Melissa
  • 10 medium or 6-8 large carrots (approximately 2 cups chopped)
  • 3 Tbsp. butter (unsalted)
  • ½ cup brown sugar (I used dark but light is fine too)
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste
  1. Peel carrots and slice on a diagonal into 1 inch pieces
  2. Boil carrots in lightly salted water for 5 minutes, until they are cooked about halfway through
  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter over medium heat in a large pan, preferably with deep sides and a lid
  4. Add brown sugar, thyme and cayenne pepper to the melted butter and stir to combine
  5. Drain carrots and add to the butter mixture
  6. Season lightly with salt
  7. Toss the carrots in the butter mixture to coat, and cook over medium to medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes, allowing the carrots to caramelize
  8. Enjoy!
