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.

Gorgeous! I spent 3 hours slaving over a roast lamb with wine and all the trimmings recipe, made a pea casserole with broth and 100 herbs from scratch, and what did hubby like best? You got it. These carrots. :D

Made these for a luncheon today, and everyone raved about them! I was short on time with the amount I needed to make so I used and electric pressure cooker on high for 7 min. I used a little honey with my brown sugar and butter and poured that over them in a small slow cooker to keep them warm for the lunch. Amazing! I would probably shorten the pressure cooker time to 5 min next time!

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!
