Carrots in fall gain a most wonderful sweetness from the cold. This fall they are almost like candy. With a little local maple syrup, mmm. Try this easy recipe below….
Maple Glazed Carrots
An easy side to sweeten up any cold winter meal.
Chop carrots into 2 inch long sticks or slice them into disks. Steam for 15-20 minutes. In a saucepan on low mix together a 1/2 stick of butter a ¼ cup of maple syrup, 1 teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of ground ginger. Once the butter has melted and the spices have mixed in, drizzle it over the top the carrots and serve. You can keep a little boat of the sauce around for those who like it sweet!
