Candied Carrots

Yield Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots, halved lengthwise
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the maple syrup, salt, cayenne, and 1/4 cup water and bring to a boil. Add the carrots and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, turning occasionally, until the carrots are tender and the liquid has reduced to a glaze, 15 to 20 minutes. Season with the pepper.
