Candy Carrots

 

Hi everyone! Dwenlynn here again! If your kids are anything like me, they may not want to eat their vegetables all the time. Try this sweet approach to making carrots yummy! This is a quick and easy way to make plain ol’ carrots turn into something new and exciting!

The ingredients (makes about 4 servings):

  • 1 pound carrots
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water

First you will nedd to peel the carrots and slice them into small rounds. Next, steam the carrots until they are soft, but not mushy. Set these aside for now.

Using a frying pan, melt the butter, stir in the brown sugar and water. Let these ingredients cook together for about 1 minute. Or as my Papa might say “let them get to know eachother!”

Add the sliced carrots to the pan and toss them in the brown sugar mixture until they are completly covered with it. Let them finish cooking on low heat for about 3-4 minutes.

 

 

And that is it! I could eat these carrots all day! Happy cooking!
