Maple Glazed Carrots Recipe
Maple Glazed Carrots are the perfect, least fussy side dish for any holiday or Sunday supper. Delicious on their own, or fabulous with ham or turkey, these glazed carrots won't be forgotten anytime soon. Only one pan required!
Servings 8 servings
- 2 lbs baby carrots
- cold water
- salt to taste
- 2 tablespoons salted butter
- ¼ cup real maple syrup
- ¼ cup chopped cashews or almonds, pecans or pistachios
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Place carrots into a large skillet with high sides. Fill a pan with enough cold water to mostly cover the carrots. Sprinkle with salt, cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer with the lid still on until carrots are fork tender (but not falling apart tender), 12-15 minutes.
Drain and place carrots back into the hot pan. Place the pan over medium heat and add in butter, maple syrup, cashews, and parsley flakes. Cook 2-3 minutes or until all carrots are glazed with butter and syrup.
Serve and enjoy!
