I had to get this recipe from my mother in law as it was the only way my husband would eat carrots. It was then that I discovered why and now it’s the only way either of us will eat them!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place carrots in a saucepan and pour in just enough water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer until carrots are tender (about 10 minutes).
  3. Drain water from pan.
  4. Add butter and brown sugar to the carrots and stir to dissolve.
  5. Simmer for approximately another ten minutes over medium-high heat until the carrots look glazed (keep up the occasional stirring).
  6. I like to sprinkle with a little salt when serving.

Sorry to be so late reviewing these. I made them for Thanksgiving and boy were they good. I used frozed carrot slices and they were so easy. I'll definitely do them again, thanks!

I love these carrots and so does my family. I simmer these carrots on low for a while before serving so they really get soft and flavorful!

These carrots disappeared from the table. Everyone liked them. I served it with our Easter ham (#46922) and brussel sprouts (#21761). I did cook them in the microwave using baby carrots and they came out just right.
