Brown Sugar and Carrots

I don’t always make the healthiest dinners. Often when I am making something a bit unhealthy, I try to make it up by having a healthier side. Many of the vegetables I make are straight forward good for you. This recipe? Not so much.

Carrots and brown sugar just sounded like such a great combination; I couldn’t pass it up.

I used a mandoline to quickly slice the carrots.

They were pretty good. Not a daily side, but one I’d do again.

Easy Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots


  • 16 ounces baby carrots
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup water
  • dash salt
  • pepper, to taste


In a medium saucepan, combine the baby carrots with remaining ingredients. Stir to blend ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling (uncovered) for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until carrots are tender and the liquid has evaporated.

    Sounds good. It would be good for Thanksgiving time I think.

    My mum makes something similar but adds orange juice – they are SOOOOOO good! You should try it!

    Perhaps this is the way to go to convince my son to eat carrots?
