Glazed Carrots

Glazed CarrotsI will admit it. I love carrots. I have worked on a computer, close to 12 hours a day, for the last 11 years, looking at the screen, moving pixels and code around, that you would think that I should be wearing glasses. Well, I don’t. This surprises me in many ways, but I think that the reason I do not wear them is only due to the fact that I put carrots in my meals every week. Be it a stir fry, a sandwich, or as a side dish, the fact is that carrots are helping me with my vision. We all know the benefits of eating carrots, but if you need to eat them, you might as well, throw in some goods, and make a nice sweet glaze.

My wife loves this one, and so do I. This one is great for any day, but great for holidays such as Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb carrots ( I use whole minis)
  • 1/4 brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • pinch of black pepper
  • pinch of cinnamon

Begin by melting the butter in a skillet on medium heat. Add in the carrots, and start mixing your carrots in the butter, trying to coat.  Add in the brown sugar, and coat the carrots, tossing, and mixing well. Sprinkle the pepper and cinnamon, and mix well. Continue to cook until the carrots are tender, but not overcooked.

Enjoy.
