We all love carrots. They are delicious raw, roasted, sautéed, boiled, steamed and we eat them in just about anything from soups to sushi. It’s no surprise they make the dinner rotation frequently. I made these carrots in the skillet today and they were just amazing. So caramelized and sweet, it was almost like eating candy.
HERE’S HOW I MADE IT
Trim and peel the carrots. In a wide skillet over medium to high heat, cook the carrots in half a cup of water, covered, until the water evaporates.
Add butter and brown sugar and coat the carrots. Gently stir the carrots as the butter and sugar begin to thicken into a glaze.
Drizzle with balsamic glaze and toss to coat the carrots. When the carrots are caramelized and glazed to your liking, remove from the skillet and transfer to a serving dish.
These were so simple to make and they were so delicious. The deep golden bits were like candy!
