This is a holiday favorite with our family, and I am happy to share as it is simple to make!
Prep: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes
2 pounds carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste, if desired.
1 Heat 1 inch water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Add carrots and, if desired, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, until carrots are tender.
2 While carrots are cooking, heat brown sugar, butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in another saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and mixture is bubbly. Be careful not to overcook or the mixture will taste burned. Remove from heat.
3 Drain carrots. Stir carrots into brown sugar mixture. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and gently, until carrots are glazed and hot.
