1 pound sliced carrots
6T Maple Syrup
1 1/2T Butter
Sale & Pepper to Taste
Cook a pound of sliced carrots with about 6 tablespoons of maple syrup and 1 ½ tablespoons of butter with salt and pepper to taste.
When you place the carrots in the saucepan, the syrup initially won't cover them; but once the syrup is brought to a boil over high heat, it will liquefy and provide coverage.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook uncovered 15 to 20 minutes until the carrots are tender (or to preferred level of crunchiness).
These are the best cooked carrots I have ever had! When we go out to eat at Water City Grill I always get an extra order of carrots to take home.
