THE BEST CANDIED CARROTS RECIPE

Raw carrots are usually less sweet than cooked ones, it’s not due to the addition of brown sugar. When the carrots lightly boil in water then cook with butter, they tend to further release their natural sweetness.

You’re always able to add honey in case you feel they’re not sweet enough.

HOW DO YOU MAKE RAW CARROTS TASTE BETTER?

    1. Pour the water into the pan with the carrot slices. Boil until soft for 8 to 10 minutes. Keep the heat on.

    2. Dump the water. Place the skillet back over the stovetop.

    3. Season with pepper, salt, butter, and brown sugar. Stir until blended. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

    4. Once your brown sugar and melted butter mix creates a glaze that evenly coats the carrots, take the pan off the heat.
