Ingredients

  • 3 pounds carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick on the diagonal
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt and black pepper

Preparation

  1. Prepare the Carrots
    In a large skillet, combine the carrots, syrup, butter, 1/3 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

    Cook the Carrots
    Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, stirring once, until the carrots are tender and the liquid has reduced to a glaze, 12 to 15 minutes. (If the carrots are tender before the liquid has thickened, uncover, increase heat to medium-high, and cook until the liquid forms a glaze.)
